ARDROX 9812, ARDROX 9813 and ARDROX 9814
Post Emulsifiable Fluorescent Penetrants
A Product of Chemetall U.S., Inc.
PRIMARY APPLICATIONThese penetrants give crisp indications with exceptionally low levels of background and have excellent heat and UV fade characteristics. They are ideal for electrostatic application.
They are normally used in conjunction with dilute (10% v/v) ARDROX 9881 hydrophilic emulsifier and ARDROX 9D4A dry powder developer.
ARDROX 9812, ARDROX 9813 and ARDROX 9814 are used to inspect metal components during manufacture and overhaul. They can be classified as follows:
ARDROX 9812 – medium sensitivity;
ARDROX 9813 - high sensitivity;
ARDROX 9814 - ultra high sensitivity.
|1. Prepare test surface All surface:||All surface contamination such as rust, paint residues, grease, scale etc. must be completely removed. Wipe the surface with an Ardrox solvent remover. Ensure the component is within the temperature range 10 to 50° C|
|2. Penetrant application:||Apply ARDROX 9812, 9813, and 9814 to the surface and leave the penetrant on the surface for a suitable dwell period. Allow components to drain as necessary. The combined application and drainage period should be at least 10 minutes. If the drain time exceeds 1 hour the penetrant should be re-applied to the surface. Sulfur Content|
|3. Remove excess penetrant:||Remove excess penetrant by one or a combination of the following methods: a) air agitated water rinse tank, b) spray rinse tank, c) manual spray rinse [15 to 35° C, 1 to 3 minutes and 20 to 25 psi]. The conditions given are a guide only. Practical trials should be carried out to find the optimum.|
|4. Penetrant removal||Immerse in ARDROX 9881, 10% v/v in water at ambient temperature for 1.5 to 2.5 minutes. Slight agitation of components is recommended to free any trapped air. Drain for 30 seconds over the remover tank.|
|5. Second stage water rinse||Conditions as for 3. It is recommended that this rinse stage be kept separate from the pre-rinse (3.) to facilitate effluent treatment.|
|6. Oven Dry||Air recirculating oven at 85° C maximum. Typically for 10 minutes. To assist drying, either the use of clean, filtered, low pressure, compressed air (1.7 bar/25 psi maximum) or a hot water dip (80 to 90° C maximum for up to 20 seconds) can be used prior to oven drying. Use the minimum oven time required to obtain thoroughly dry components.|
|7. Apply developer||ARDROX 9D4A may be applied in purpose built dust storm cabinets, or by an electrostatic spray unit or spray applicator in an extracted booth. The contact time is 10 minutes minimum.|
|8. Inspection||Low pressure, clean filtered air at 0.3 bar/5 psi (maximum) should be used to remove excess powder prior to inspection under black (UV) light, (800 mW/cm² minimum) in a darkened area.|
EFFECTS ON MATERIALWhen ARDROX 9812, ARDROX 9813 and ARDROX 9814 are used in the prescribed manner, no significant corrosion is likely to occur on commonly used constructional metals. These products may stain or soften some plastics and rubbers and, where appropriate, a compatibility test should be carried out.
EQUIPMENTSIt is recommended that tanks are constructed from stainless steel (grade 304 or equivalent), mild steel may be used provided it is free from rust, scale and other contaminants.
