Nondestructive Testing

The Nondestructive Testing Industry plays a key function within the Construction Industry in Canada. The Industry is comprised of highly specialized technicians who ensure that building materials, fabrication and joining processes and new repairs meet strict industry standards. Specialized means such as radiography (x-ray), ultrasound, magnetic particle inspection and liquid penetrant are used to evaluate areas that are difficult or impossible to examine using the naked eye. This equipment allows the technicians to detect such things as internal corrosion or evaluate the integrity of a welded structure.

In accordance with the Collective Agreement between the Nondestructive Testing Management Association and the Quality Control Council of Canada, a Group Insurance Plan and a Pension Plan have been arranged by the Board of Trustees and administered by D.A. Townley.
