Our unique SmartWater® forensic marking technology marks both assets and intruders, providing a legally irrefutable way to deter theft, identify assets and convict criminals. Our SmartTrace® and SmartSpray® products have been proven in domestic and commercial environments for over 20-years.
SmartWater is the only forensic marking technology that retains a 100% conviction rate in contested court cases. The process of identifying SmartWater is fully compliant with the Forensic Science Regulator's Codes of Practice.
Widely adopted by UK law enforcement, rail and highways network operators, the retail sector, and places of worship. SmartWater forensic liquid products have a successful track record in reducing crime; achieving an 86% reduction in cable theft for BT, and 57% reduction in catalytic converter theft nationally with Toyota.
Each solution of SmartWater contains a unique combination of elements that provides near limitless permutations, each of which can be linked to a single application. Invisible to the naked eye, SmartWater glows yellow-green under ultraviolet (UV) light, which is how it is detected by law enforcement.
