KO-17 hi-temp penetrant is a visible dye penetrant used to find flaws on surfaces at elevated temperatures, up to 176.7ºC. KO-17 saves time for weldmet inspection allowing the inspection to take place at pre-heated temperatures. Complies with low sulfur and low halogen requirements. Because KO-17 works at high temperatures, the heat drives contaminants from flaws and heat-expanded flaws trap more penetrant, giving stronger indications.

Special Features

  • KO-17 can be used to find surface flaws at elevated temperatures.
  • KO-17 meets the ASME code qualification procedure compliance.
  • KO-17 meets the requirements for low sulfur and halogen.
  • KO-17 requires less dwell time.
  • KO-17 is a water washable visible dye penetrant.
