Acorn Surface Technology
Non-Destructive Testing

We have an aerospace-standard, accredited Fluorescent Flaw Detection facility capable of inspecting Aluminium and Steel components. 

The process involves the application of a special fluorescent dye solution designed to permeate any defects in the surface of the base material. Once the excess solution is washed off, a developer powder is applied which allows, when inspected under ultra-violet light, any flaws (cracks, pitting, stress, corrosion) to be identified. The absence of any indications confirms the component is suitable for use and further treatment/manufacture. 

Our approved inspectors can confirm the integrity of your components on our site immediately before surface treatment as part of a one-stop shop service. A wide range of national and third party accreditation is in place – please contact us for more information.
