E-59 is a class 2 (non-halogenated), Method C inspection penetrant remover. It is designed for use in the solvent wipe technique for penetrant inspection in general metalworking, welding, nuclear and automotive applications. It is a slow dry rate material and is ideal for penetrant wipe removal. E-59 is not used as a pre-inspection surface cleaner. As a penetrant remover it is sprayed onto wiping media and then the penetrant wiped from the surface. The remover should not be sprayed directly on to the test surface to remove the excess penetrant as the sensitivity will be impaired.
E-59 is listed on the Qualified Products List for AMS-2644E. It meets the requirements of AMS-2647, ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, ASTM E-165, ASTM E-1417, and ISO- 3452-2005 for penetrant inspection materials. It is low in Sulfur, Chlorine, Fluorine and other Halogens, making it safe for use on Titanium and high Nickel alloys found in aerospace, medical and nuclear components.
E-59 contains flammable solvents and should not be used around open flames or sparks.
