Magnaglo Carrier II Oil is designed to promote enhanced magnetic particle mobility and suspension.
Magnaglo Carrier II Oil is used to suspend wet (oil) method magnetic particles when water is not used as a suspension vehicle. It has virtually no odor or fluorescence. Carrier II has a flash point in excess of 200Â°F allowing it to meet OSHA requirements for a Class III B liquid.

Method of Application
MG/MX Carrier II is supplied ready to use. The magnetic particles should be added to the carrier at the recommended concentration and thoroughly mixed to ensure an even suspension. The ink strength should be checked prior to use.
Components should be cleaned prior to testing to provide a suitable test surface and to prolong bath life. This can be easily and effectively achieved by using a solvent cleaner such as SKC-S.
The ink must be mixed thoroughly prior to use and must be kept agitated during testing.
Bath Replenishment / Concentration Control
When in use, the magnetic content of any ink will become depleted. To guard against this the ink strength should be checked at least once each day.
The most widely used method of control is by settlement volume using a graduated ASTM pear shaped centrifuge tube.
When the settlement volume approaches the lower limit then additions of the appropriate particles can be made to the bath, providing the bath liquid is still clean and uncontaminated.
If the bath appears contaminated or has been in use for any length of time, the contents should be replaced.
After inspection the components should be properly demagnetized before cleaning to insure ease of particle removal.
MG/MX Carrier II should be used at temperatures between 10°C and 50°C.
