NDT Methods: Liquid Penetrant

Testing is a non-destructive means of location and determining the severity of surface discontinuities in materials, based upon capillarity. Capillarity or capillary attraction is the action by which the surface of a liquid, where it is contact with a solid, is elevated or depressed. The materials, processes and procedures used in Liquid Penetrant testing are designed to facilitate capillarity and to make the results of such action visible and capable of interpretation.

It is used to test a variety of both metallic and non-metallic materials such as welds, forgings, castings, plastics and ceramics, etc., economically revealing surface discontinuities.
