Water Conditioners & Additives
AX-52 is a water-soluble corrosion inhibitor developed specifically for water-based magnetic particle suspensions. It provides excellent corrosion inhibition to protect parts and equipment from rusting.
When using water as a magnetic particle vehicle, metal parts can be protected from corrosion by using AX-52, which comes as a clear to amber liquid. AX-52 dissolves quickly in water, and can be used in all wet method water baths to improve the corrosion protection.
WA-2B is a general-purpose water-conditioning powder to enhance surface wetting and magnetic particle dispersion stability in water-based magnetic particle suspensions. Its unique blend of wetting agents, corrosion inhibitors and anti-forming agents eliminates the need for additional water conditioning agents.
A white granular powder that is added to water baths in wet method magnetic particle testing with no further bath treatment required. WA-2B features good surface wetting and particle dispersion, and will not cake in storage. WA-2B is added to the water bath and stirred until dissolved before the magnetic particles are added.
ZAF-2 is an excellent general-purpose defoaming additive to eliminate and prevent foaming in water-based magnetic particle suspensions, aqueous penetrant developer baths, hydrophilic penetrant remover baths and aqueous cleaning solutions. A few drops of ZAF-2 are enough to eliminate foaming in most water-based solutions.
ZAF-2 can be sprinkled onto the surfaces of baths to eliminate foaming. It is not intended to remove fine lather which may occur in recirculating baths where there is excessive air intake in the recirculation pump.
