Radiographic Testing

Radiographic Testing (RT), is used in the general engineering, defence and aerospace sectors to inspect a variety of materials for hidden flaws via X-rays and gamma-ray exposure.

Radiographic testing offers many benefits, including the ability to detect both surface and sub-surface flaws, with minimal surface preparation, whilst providing a permanent record of the inspection and relevant indications.
