Bath Preparation: 14AM (oil based): 14AM is ready to use from the container.

Method of Application: 14AM: Shake can well to suspend the particles. If using bulk 14AM, shake or stir material to ensure uniform particle dispersion and pour into tank or vessel. Spray or pour onto properly magnetized test part, making sure that the entire surface to be inspected is covered. Inspect part. Indications will form immediately and appear as fluorescent green lines under a UV Black Light of 365 nm.

Note: Exposing 14AM to a strong magnetic field may adversely affect particle redistribution. 14AM should always be stored away from magnetizing equipment. Age and/or exposure to elevated temperatures can adversely affect the particle dispersion properties of 14AM and 14A Aqua-Glo in aerosol cans. As such, we recommend verifying proper concentration of the product by performing a sensitivity check using a QQI or other known test standard prior to inspection.

Post Inspection Cleaning: The parts must be properly demagnetized before cleaning to ensure ease of particle removal.

Specification Compliance: 14AM: DOD-F-87935, AMS-3045, AMS-3046 (aerosol package only), ASTM E 1444, Cummins IS-16048-13, MILSTD-2132, ASTM E709(E-138), Boeing PS 21201, British Std. B.S. 4069.
