We have an item made from aluminum (6061-T6) that needs a dye penetrant inspection. The problem is that the person that prepared the part for inspection stripped all the coatings off using media blasting. As a result, it is not possible to perform the inspection properly because of all the impacted residue. Can anyone tell me how we can now clean the surfaces in preparation for penetrant?
