penetrant from part surfaces. It is a manual wipe on and wipe off material and is
recommended for small areas. DR-60 may also be used for generally cleaning oily, dirty
surfaces. DR-60 is especially suitable for cleaning prior to the application of inspection
penetrants. Complies with low sulfur and low halogen requirements

Additional information


These instructions describe the basic process, but they may need to be amended by
the user to comply with applicable specification and /or inspection criteria provided by the
contracting agency

1. Application

Apply penetrant only to clean, dry surfaces by spraying, flowing, brushing
or dipping

2. Dwell Time

A 10 minute dwell time is suggested, although in many cases five minutes
will suffice. When particularly tight cracks are suspected, or the part is especially critical,
the dwell time may be extended to 30 minutes, or longer. Allow the penetrant to drain
from the part surface back into the penetrant tank to conserve material

3. Removal

Remove as much excess penetrant as possible using clean, dry rag or
toweling. Remove remaining penetrant film by wiping with a rag or toweling that has been
slightly moistened with DR-60. Use a minimal of DR-60; avoid flushing penetrant from
flaws. Do not spray DR-60 directly on the part surface when removing excess penetrant
Rough surfaces require more generous applications of DR-60

4. Drying

Allow the surface to dry completely before applying developer

5. Developing

Apply the developer by cloud, dusting, spray or dip using the appropriate
developer. Flaw marks are visible under appropriate lighting almost immediately, but
allow sufficient developing time to enhance the flaw visibility

6. Inspection

Inspect parts under appropriate light
