Applied Technical Services (ATS) implements one of the most proven inspection methods using dye penetrant testing. Our clients ask for this method since it is extremely receptive to small surface flaws and discontinuities. In addition, it is used on a wide-range of complex and intricate contours and materials ranging from metals, plastics or polymers, and rubbers. PT is a highly-demanded cost cutting measure to quickly inspect large-sized objects or a considerable amount of components.
