Contrast- the relative amount of light emitted or reflected between and indication and its background. Defect- a discontinuity that effects the usefulness of a part or specimen. Developer- a finely divided material applied over the surface of a part to help promote reverse capillary action and thus bring out a penetrant indication. AAE 552 Spring 2009 A. F. Grandt 2 Glossary of Terms Discontinuity- any interruption in the normal physical structure of a part or weld. It may or may not affect the usefulness of a part. Dwell Time - the period of time that a penetrant or developer must remain in contact with the surface of a part under test. Emulsification Time - the time allowed for the emulsifier to render the penetrant water washable and thus allow the part to be washed. Emulsifier- a material applied over a film of penetrant that renders it water washable. Glossary of Terms Evaluation- the process of deciding as to the severity of the condition after an indication has been interpreted. False Indication - an indication caused by improper processing; not caused by a relevant or non-relevant condition. Flash Time - the time required for the solvent to evaporate from the surface of a part when used to preclean or remove excess penetrant. Fluorescent Dye - a dye which becomes fluorescent (gives off light) when exposed to short wave radiation such as ultraviolet light. Glossary of Terms Indication- the visible evidence or penetrant bleed-out on the surface of the specimen Interpretation- the process of evaluating an indication in an attempt to determine the cause and nature of the discontinuity....
