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
