In the aerospace industry the Ardrox® brand is acknowledged worldwide as the leading brand of cleaning technologies. The brand is also famously associated with materials for non-destructive testing (NDT), particularly its range of dye penetrants and magnetic inks, for finding surface defects.  

The first Ardrox technology was approved as early as the year 1948. Many innovative products have followed since then: for instance products free of the carcinogenic azo dyes. Ardrox® are also one of the pioneers in the use of NPE-free penetrants. As well as a new generation of technologies, which are low odour and characterized by a high wetting ability, which can be easily washed off and have excellent background characteristics.
