Today Eastman Kodak Company announced the introduction of the KODAK Industrial X-Ray Films and Chemicals for non-destructive testing (NDT). Film radiography is an NDT technique used to check internal integrity when inspecting parts and assemblies in the aerospace, oil, and automotive industries. The ruggedness and flexibility of film make it ideal for use in harsh conditions.

Kodak has partnered with MPM Products and Test Equipment Distributors (TED) to distribute their new line of industrial X-ray films and chemicals. The products are available for sale in the US now.

The reintroduction of non-destructive testing X-ray film products highlights Kodak’s ongoing commitment to and investment in film. Kodak’s reintroduction of EKTACHROME film is a recent example of the resurgence in demand for analog film.

“We are excited to announce a strong return to the NDT space,” said Eric-Yves Mahe, President, Consumer and Film Division, Kodak. “Film continues to find applications in many spaces by leveraging our legacy and expertise in materials science.”

KODAK Industrial X-Ray Films are ASTM E 1815 certified with a rugged durability for high demand applications. Kodak’s T-Grain Emulsion delivers technology that maximizes contrast and minimizes noise. Customers can expect great attention to detail for each speed range with a powerful image quality and tone. Offering excellent processing flexibility, Kodak industrial films are effective in long and short cycles. They are static-resistant, heat-resistant, and incredibly sturdy.

“Kodak film products have earned a long-standing reputation as a leader in quality,” said Nagraj Bokinkere, General Manager, Commercial Films, Kodak. “We are excited to offer what we expect will be market-leading KODAK Industrial X-Ray Films and Chemicals at an attractive price”.

Proudly manufactured in Rochester, NY in the USA, Kodak now offers an optimized product range and competitive pricing.
