Neoastra FCW is ideal for the inspection of welds, pressure vessels, structures, pipes, castings, forgings and most other ferromagnetic components.

Neoastra FCW is a water based concentrate and should therefore be diluted before use. Typically one 500mL bottle of concentrate will make 25L of product. Neoastra FCW it is not classified as hazardous after dilution.
