Ultraviolet Thief Detection Powder
Ultraviolet Thief Detection Powder is designed for thief detection and
the identification of stolen or altered items. For example, an article
can be marked so that it is invisible to the eye, but under ultraviolet
light the item and anyone who touched it can be identified.
touched, remains on fingers and hands, invisible except under UV light.
Tampering, theft, substitution, etc., can be revealed as well as
evidence against a suspect provided.
Fluorescence is the phenomenon by
which certain materials absorb ultraviolet energy and re-emit this
invisible radiation in the form of visible colored light. Fluorescence
occurs only while the material is being activated by the UV rays. Once
the source of the UV radiation is removed, the fluorescent glow ceases.
The best fluorescent responses occur in darkness or under low-level
lighting conditions. This fluorescent tracer powder readily transfers to
the fingers and hands when touched, leaving the subject “glowing” when
put under UV inspection.
Powder is recommended for indoor use; paste is recommended for most outdoor use. To make an ultraviolet paste, simply mix the powder in Vasoline.
Ultraviolet powder and paste can be applied
to locks, fire alarm boxes, off-limits door knobs, computer keyboards,
etc.; the list is unlimited, depending upon your security requirements.
