dye penetrant inspection
- A technique of nondestructive testing to detect surface defects in metal or plastic components. The component is soaked in a penetrating liquid and then washed to remove all penetrant from its surface. The surface is then covered with a developing powder. The powder pulls the penetrant from any defects on the surface of the component. The penetrant plainly shows up on the powder-covered surface, outlining any defective surface.
