Acid Etch Inspection is a non-destructive test technique used to evaluate the effects of poorly controlled secondary manufacturing processes such as machining, grinding and heat treatment on metallic components.

The technique can be applied to materials ranging from steels to copper alloys- although for this course we will restrict our discussion to steels. The process involves the use of dilute acidic solutions and can detect a variety of conditions.

The effects of inadequate control of secondary manufacturing processes can have catastrophic consequences. The crash of a helicopter from the Queen’s flight in 1967 is one such example.
