Method of use
For precleaning operations, ARDROX 9PR5 is best used by spray or immersion. However, it may be applied by any other suitable technique, such as brushing or applying via a cloth.
After suitable precleaning, penetrant application and the necessary penetrant contact time, the excess penetrant is removed with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth or tissue. The next stage is to use ARDROX 9PR5 to remove the final traces of excess penetrant from the surface. This is best done by applying ARDROX 9PR5 to a cloth or tissue and then wiping over the surface with the cloth. The application of ARDROX 9PR5 via a cloth should be continued until the cloth picks up virtually no penetrant.
After removal of the excess penetrant, a thin even coat of developer is applied to the components.
