Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection (FPI)

FPI is a non-destructive test to detect even the smallest of defects that may compromise the integrity or quality of your part.

J&L's FPI offering includes sonic cleaning/penetrant application performed by one of our level 1 processors and inspection by our level 2 inspector with decades of experience. Our techniques are reviewed prior to quote by our Level 3 who also monitors our quality and training. Certifications are provided with all lots. Communication sheets provided for details of rejected pieces.
