Solvent for White Contrast Paint for Magnetic Particle Inspection


Inspection :

The part is subjected to an intense magnetic flux, which is deviated by the presence of a defect. This escape attracts the particles of the product and the defects now are clearly visible as fluorescent or black lines.

Composition :

FLUXO 5: is a solution solvent.

Use :

This Magnetic particle examination is used for the detection of emerging defects in all ferromagnetic materials.


Aeronautics, Automobile, Railway, etc...
Components are magnetised and FLUXO 3 is applied to the test area, normally by
spraying immediately prior to and during magnetisation. Application of FLUXO 3 should cease before the magnetisation is switched off. Defects will show up as well defined black indications and inspection should take place in good white light of at least 500 lux.

It is not practical to use FLUXO 3 on dark coloured substrates as it would be difficult for the inspector to identify indications against the dark background. For this reason, FLUXO 7 is frequently used to provide a contrasting white background against the black indications thereby enabling the inspector see and interpret indications more easily.

FLUXO 5 is used in order to wipe off the White Contract Paint FLUXO 7 after magnetic
