Ardrox 8800 is a fluorescent magnetic particle formulated for use in petroleum-based carrier fluids. Ardrox 8800 is most commonly used in Ardrox Base Oil HF at 1/6 ounce per gallon (1.25 grams per Liter). Setting volume range is 0.15 to 0.30 ml after 30 minutes. A rough measure for bath makeup is 7.5 teaspoons of powder for every 5 gallons of bath, or one 500 gram container for every 100 gallons of bath volume.
Ardrox 8800 is a high sensitivity material that will yield a relative sensitivity of 8 indications on an AISI 01 ketos ring ( as defined in MIL-STD-1949) set on a one inch diameter copper bar magnetized with 2,500 amps, direct current.

ARDROX 8901W is a suspension of white pigment in a resin base, which utilizes a fast drying solvent
system to facilitate speed and ease of application. ARDROX 8901W is used in conjunction with the
ARDROX visible magnetic particle inspection processes. It provides an excellent contrasting white
background when dark steels are being tested. ARDROX 8901W provides a matte finish which assists the
viewing of defects due to the lack of reflections produced. The smooth surface finish provided by this
product allows the magnetic ink to remain mobile on the surface for longer, thus assisting the detecting of

Ardrox 906 is a water washable color contrast penetrant, widely used in many industries for the detection of indications which are open to the surface of non-porous parts. Ardrox 906 is dark red in color, allowing easy control and monitoring of the washing process. Ardrox 906 is a high-sensitivity, low- viscosity liquid with excellent surface wetting properties to ensure optimum coverage of the part. It is used in conjunction with developers and a penetrant remover which can be water or a suitable organic solvent as a part of the inspection technique.
Defects such as cracks, laps, cold shuts, porosity, bursts, casting and welding discontinuities can be detected using the appropriate process. Ardrox 906 has been formulated to ensure the product has improved resistance to over-washing where removal by water spray is the preferred method. Ardrox 906 is designed to be used with a non-aqueous developer such as Ardrox 9D1B or Ardrox NQ1.

ARDROX 970P25E has been approved for sensitivity Level 3.
This penetrant is characterized by its controlled washability, which makes it less susceptible to overwashing. This high entrapment feature truly makes it unique in comparison to other water washable products. Flaw finding is enhanced by its excellent bleed back properties. ARDROX 970P25E has a flash point of well over 300ºF (149ºC). Very low in odor, it contains no petroleum solvents, no heavy metals, and no fats, oils or greases as constituents. There is no loss of sensitivity due to evaporation nor will this product break down under high temperature conditions.
- It provides:
Bright, crisp indications
Low residual background
Exceptionally high and UV fade resistance

Ardrox 9881 is a hydrophilic type emulsifier used for the removal of the new Ardrox 981x series of post-emulsifiable, fluorescent penetrants (Method D). It is to be diluted in water then applied by immersion, spray or foam-on method.
The use of Ardrox 9881 minimizes background fluorescence on part surfaces, as well as bleed out of excess penetrant from hollow parts. It is economical to use because it can be applied at 10% by volume for immersion and less than 5% for spray and foam-on applications.
Ardrox 9881 is a blend of biodegradable surface active agents, coupling solvent and corrosion inhibitors. It is low in sulphur, halogen and alkali metal content. In addition, Ardrox 9881 shows an improved odor and bath stability and it is designed to meet the latest surfactant regulations.

ARDROX 9D1B is a suspension of an inert white powder in a quick drying solvent. It has a low sulphur, halogen and alkali metal content. ARDROX 9D1B can be used with any of the ARDROX range of visible and fluorescent penetrants. Batch certification is available on request.
ARDROX 9D1B has no effect on most common materials of construction. It is safe to use on steel, aluminium, brass, bronze, copper, magnesium, cadmium plate and titanium. Some plastics and rubbers may be softened by prolonged contact with this material hence it is advisable to check before using specific grades of these.
