Non-destructive testing. Penetrant and magnetic particle testing using blue light

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : February 2014



This Technical Report specifies the requirements for penetrant and magnetic particle testing, the materials and viewing conditions when using fluorescent detection media excited by actinic blue light. It is not intended that this sub-method technique is used as a substitute for the existing colour contrast and fluorescent techniques standardised in the EN ISO 3452 series and EN ISO 9934 series.
