EnTron-Aero is a powerful, safe, non-flammable advanced nPB based solvent which effectively removes contaminants prior to applying liquid fluorescent penetrant used in Non Destructive Testing.
Over the years, we have learned a great deal about using solvents and vapor degreasing to prepare parts for NDT testing and to
remove non-destructive fluorescent penetrants like Zyglo®.
The benefit of using EnTron-Aero and vapor degreasing for pre-cleaning is that the parts are completely cleaned of all contaminants and come out completely dry ready to apply the penetrant. Once Zyglo® testing is complete, the manufactured parts need to be cleaned of all the fluorescent markings. Many aerospace manufactures already have vapor degreasers as part of their manufacturing process which can be used for pre and post NDT processing.
EnTron-Aero can be used effectively to clean the Zyglo®, other fluorescent penetrants, and other contaminants (such as machining oils) from the parts prior to the next phase of manufacturing.
Parts cleaned in EnTron-Aero leave the degreaser free of contaminants, dry and ready to be used without additional cleaning processes.
EnTron-Aero's low surface tension, high evaporation rate and powerful solvency make it ideal for removing fluorescent penetrants and other contaminants from parts with blind holes and complex geometries.
Fluorescent penetrant testing is a versatile process for detecting defects open to the surface in non-porous materials. Zyglo® is used as the term of art for testing critical components for defects, in the aerospace, automotive and ceramic industries. Zyglo® is also a manufactured fluorescent liquid penetrant. Defects open to the surface are highly visible when Zyglo® is viewed under ultraviolet (A) light.
Prior to coating the test part in the fluorescent liquid, the part needs to be free of all contaminants. This is an excellent time to vapor degrease the part in EnTron-Aero in preparation for NDT.
After test analysis is complete, the Zyglo® and/or other liquid penetant fluorescent needs to be removed/rinsed from the part. It is in this stage of the test process that EnTron-Aero becomes valuable. EnTron-Aero in your vapor degreaser - can effectively remove the Zyglo®.
EnTron-Aero is a technologically advanced nPB solvent formulation which produces consistent, stable results in vapor cleaning and degreasing applications, which is why it has been approved for use under Boeing Aircraft Company BAC5408. EnTron-Aero has passed extensive test validation by the premier aerospace manufacturer to ensure EnTron-Aero produces the level of cleaning required for aerospace parts.
EnTron-Aero is approved for use on Titanium and is formulated to be compatible with all metals and a broad range of elastomers and
See metal compatability chart and plastic compatibility chart.
EnTron-Aero is highly effective in cleaning organic contaminants such as oils, greases, lubricants, coolants, drawing fluids, adhesives, waxes, fluxes and flux residues.[Return to top.]
