Analysis laboratory according to ASTM E165 standard

As an industrialist you wish to carry out analysis according to the ASTM E165 standard

What is ASTM E165?

The standard explains the different methods of analysis for liquid penetrants used for the examination/inspection of parts. When using penetrants on stainless steels, titanium, nickel base or other high temperature alloys, the need to limit impurities such as sulfur and halogens must be taken into account. These impurities can cause embrittlement or corrosion, especially at high temperatures. FILAB’s laboratory can assist you in performing analysis according to ASTM E165.

Why analyze your penetrating products according to the ASTM E165 standard?

Some penetrants contain significant amounts of these impurities in the form of volatile organic solvents but also in non-volatile form. These impurities can react with the part, in particular in the presence of humidity or high temperatures.

Thus, the accompaniment by a laboratory specialized in the analysis of your penetrant products in compliance with the ASTM E165 standard is a considerable asset.
