Chemetall’s Britemor 921 is a water-based penetrant for eco-friendly and process efficient fluorescent penetrant inspection. The penetrant’s low fluorescent background and wash characteristics enable bright and crisp indications on a wide range of materials, including ferrous and nonferrous metals, and non-porous ceramics. The penetrant is used in the automotive components market, general industry foundries and NDT inspection/service companies with regard to process cost savings, environmental and performance enhancements. This product uses water as the main carrier, stabilized by a distinctive micro-emulsion technology. These micro-emulsions are thermodynamically stable and composed of isotropic liquid mixtures of solvent, water and emulsifier. The low viscosity of the Britemor 921 ensures minimal drag out, reduces overall product and rinse water consumption and minimizes the effluent treatment costs, Chemetall says. Complemented by a low toxic unit value, this penetrant is designed for direct discharge to the drain, depending on local water and environment authority regulations.
