Authorised Ardrox Distributors

The Ardrox® name is well recognised as the premier brand of cleaning technologies in the aircraft sector. The brand is also well-known for its association with materials for non-destructive testing (NDT), especially its range of dye penetrants and magnetic inks for finding surface defects.  

Ardrox technology was approved for the first time in 1948. Since then, several innovative products have emerged, such as those which do not contain carcinogenic azo dyes. Ardrox® were also one of the pioneers in the use of NPE-free penetrants as well as a new generation of low-odour technologies, which are characterized by a high wetting ability. These can be easily washed off and have excellent background characteristics.
