In this paper the ultrasonic test performance of water based Methylcellulose couplant on steel is reported. The couplant used in the ultrasonic testing has an influence on the amplitude of the pulse echo signal. The ultrasonic energy which is transmitted from the transducer to the test material, through the couplant which is present in the interface. The amplitudes of back wall echo increases with increasing acoustic impedance of the couplant. In this research work couplant was prepared by using 0 to 50g of methylcellulose in steps of 10g in 250 ml of water. All five types of water based methylcellulose couplant were used for testing a standard stainless steel calibration U2 block. The effect on the amplitudes of back wall echoes was studied and best possible combination of water and methylcellulose are reported.
