List of Standards for Dye Penetrant Inspection

Liquid penetrant inspection is used to detect any surface-connected discontinuities such as cracks from fatigue, quenching, and grinding, as well as fractures, porosity, incomplete fusion, and flaws in joints. Here is a list of standards generally followed in industry related to dye penetrant inspection.
