SmartWater is a permanent, traceable liquid that can be used to invisibly mark personal property. It is suitable for marking a wide range of items whatever their size, including jewellery, laptops, and vehicles.
SmartWater carries a unique forensic ‘code’ which is registered to an address or location. This makes it possible for the police to identify the owners of property where this would otherwise be impossible.
