Sonagel W


Overview

This couplant is designed for use on all types of metallic surface and is especially suited to solving the problems of rough, pitted, uneven surfaces to allow smooth probe movement during testing.

The thixotropic properties of this couplant give excellent wetting and acoustic transmission and do not allow the product to flow all over the test area; and so is very economical to use as you only cover the working area not the whole piece.

Features

Sonagel W incorporates chemicals, which allow very slow drying even at elevated temperatures, whilst being free VOC's and other hazardous materials. However, it does contain a special tracer dye to enable areas to be checked for coverage but the couplant is still easily removed with water or solvent wipes.

Sonagel W is available in easy to use 125ml applicator bottles, 250ml bottles, as well as in plastic 1 litre, 5 litre and 25 litre bulk containers (with suitable carrying handles).

*NB: This product will have a flash point of 160°C (PM) when used for long periods at elevated temperatures.

Aircraft manufacturers have very demanding specifications when it comes to non-destructively measuring the wall thickness of aircraft parts.

Paint on Various Substrates

Paint on Various Substrates

Most conventional coating thickness gages using eddy current or magnetic induction or other magnetic techniques can easily and accurately measure the thickness of paint on metals such as that on an automotive hood. They cannot measure paint on non-metal materials such as plastic bumpers, composites, wood or concrete.

Inspection of Nozzles using the Veo3 and Scannner

Inspection of Nozzles using the Veo3 and Scannner

Traditional UT inspection is time consuming, creating a scan plan and then performing the scan using multiple transducers. When using the Veo3 and Nozzle Scan the set ups can all be done offsite, thereby substantially reducing and easing site work.
