General description

ECO Water Red is a water-washable, color-contrast, UV-fluorescent penetrant with excellent resolution when detecting indications of surface discontinuities. This penetrant belongs to the CGM’s ECO line as it is a water-based product: it therefore does not contain petroleum derivatives or hydrocarbon mixtures. It thus has a low environmental impact compared to classic petroleum-based liquid penetrants. Additionally, you can use it as a fluorescent liquid under UV light to amplify indications.
