Visible penetrants are not rated by sensitivity levels per AMS-2644 but are considered approximately equal to level 1 fluorescent penetrants. 50μ discontinuities are readily detected and under controlled conditions 30μ size defects may be highlighted by visible penetrants. ISO-3452 does rate visible penetrants by sensitivity level with #2 being the most sensitive. VP-30 is a level 2 per this specifications requirements.
