Magnavis® WCP-2 Contrast Paint provides a white background that enhances magnetic particle indications and is composed of acetone and inorganic pigments and utilizes a carbon dioxide aerosol propellant for ease of application.
General Description: Magnavis® WCP-2 White Contrast Paint provides a white background to enhance visible magnetic particle indications. WCP-2 is supplied in aerosol containers only.
Composition: Magnavis® WCP-2 is composed of acetone and inorganic pigments. The aerosol propellant is carbon dioxide.
Method of Application: Parts should be cleaned and dried prior to testing to ensure a more uniform test surface. Shake WCP-2 to ensure uniform distribution of particles. Apply a uniform thin film of WCP-2 to the test surface. Wait one minute to allow the WCP-2 film to dry. Apply magnetic particles to the test surface. Observe indications formed around leakage fields. If base material has a high retentivity, indications will remain visible. If base material has a low retentivity, the indications will appear to slowly fade away.
Post Inspection Cleaning: The parts must be properly demagnetized before cleaning to ensure ease of particle removal. Acetone will remove WCP-2.
Temperature: Magnavis® WCP-2 White Contrast Paint should be used at temperatures between 40° – 120° F.
Specification Compliance: BS 5044.
Coverage: (1) 16 oz. aerosol can covers approximately 65 square feet.
