Dye penetrant testing to inspect for non-visible cracks or defects is a process that may need to be performed during damage diagnosis, part inspection or in-process after welding work is completed.

Labor and material costs to perform a dye penetrant crack inspection is NOT INCLUDED in published labor times and would require an on-the-spot evaluation.

Areas where crack inspections are commonly performed include vehicle structures, castings, suspension, and engine components where cracks may not be visible without aid.
