Couplant


Ambient Temperature Couplants Broad Temperature Range UT Couplants

SOUNDSAFE Safety to the environment and to the ultrasonic technician is the key feature of SOUNDSAFE. It is the highest performance couplant in the Sonotech family of water based, water soluble, environmentally benign couplants.
SONOGLIDE SonoGlide is a non-drying, liquid couplant for use in flaw detection in the power generating industry and on large, smooth surfaces such as aircraft, turbine rotors, and tank cars or thickness gaging where a thin liquid film of couplant is desired.
ULTRAGEL II ULTRAGEL II is Sonotech's premier ambient temperature couplant with a 21+ year history of reliability and superior performance in the nuclear, aerospace and power generating industries. Due to its unsurpassed quality and reliability, ULTRAGEL II is the most specified couplant in the world.
 

Mid Temperature Range UT Couplants

SOUNDCLEAR SOUNDCLEAR is an environmentally benign and operator safe couplant that holds on overhead surfaces and fills depressions in rough surfaces, facilitating its use in flaw detection, thickness gaging, and acoustic emission testing. SOUNDCLEAR is available in two viscosity grades.
SONOTRACE SONOTRACE is a mid range, water based ultrasonic couplant with good price to performance ratio for ultrasonic inspections in which Chlorine, Sulfur and low melting point metals must be kept to a minimum.
 

High Volume, Economy UT Couplants

UT-X POWDER UT-X POWDER is an economical, easy to mix environmentally benign and operator safe couplant for flaw detection and thickness gaging that drastically reduces shipping costs and storage space requirements.
UT-X UT-X is an environmentally benign and operator safe couplant for flaw detection and thickness gaging that resists viscosity breakdown on salt-caked surfaces such as boilers.
ECHOGEL Industry standard since 1974, ECHOGEL is an economically priced couplant for flaw inspection and thickness gaging for volume use. ECHOGEL offers outstanding wetting capabilities and will quickly wet oily and dirty surfaces.
