VBP-300 is a visible (Type 2), water washable (Method A) and solvent removable (Method C) inspection penetrant. It is designed for use in general metalworking, welding, nuclear and automotive applications for surface flaw detection. VBP-300 is an oil and solvent free biodegradable penetrant and has found wide use in the inspection of food and dairy processing equipment. Visible penetrants are not rated by sensitivity levels per AMS-2644 but are considered approximate to level 1 fluorescent penetrants. 50ì discontinuities are readily detected and under controlled conditions 30ì size defects may be high lighted by visible penetrants. ISO-3452-2005 does rate visible penetrants
by sensitivity level with #2 being the most sensitive. VBP-300 is a level 2 per this specifications requirements.

VBP-300 is listed on the Qualified Products List for AMS-2644E. It meets the requirements of 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 medical and nuclear components.
