Magnaflux Dry Mag Particles

Magnaflux Dry Mag Particles

Dry Method Non-Florescent Magnetic Particles in #1 Gray, #2 Yellow and #8A Red


Magnaflux Magnavis Dry Method Non-Fluorescent Magnetic Powders produce clear sharp indications across a variety surfaces and background colors. Ready to use, free flowing and general purpose magnetic powders, designed to produce superior indications of surface and slightly subsurface discontinuities in ferrous materials. Used to identify indications in welds, large forgings and castings. It can be used in a powder blower or shaken from a bottle during magnetization, and blown off while current is still being applied. On material with a high magnetic retentivity, indications can still be formed after the current has been turned off.

Available in #1 Gray, #2 Yellow and #8A Red and in a 10 lb. pail, 45 lb. pail or 500 lb. drum.
