Tracking the tiniest cracks – with H2O wastewater treatment. Heavy use, material fatigue and material faults can cause tiny cracks in plastic and metal parts. These are so small that they are invisible to the naked eye. But they can still be relevant to safety, e.g. on the wings of passenger jets. That’s why these parts are regularly checked for micro cracks. One way of doing this is the dye penetration process, where the part to be checked is first thoroughly cleaned. Applying a special dye and using a suitable developer, the tiniest cracks become visible on the surface, enabling defective parts to be easily identified and replaced. If the crack check reveals no problems, the transfer agents are washed and approved for further operations.

We have developed washing techniques and technologies for the military industry in keeping with high military standards of safety and efficiency, using water jets and the sanding power of aluminum oxide. We are currently creating an anchor profile that will allow us to file a plating patent application for an exclusive, entirely automated surface treatment which prolongs engine life in extreme conditions. At IST Pure, we also manufacture washing tunnels for the complete cleaning of military vehicles and ballistic equipment to prepare for and return from missions.
