Ultraviolet Tracking Powder

Ultraviolet Tracking Powder


Ultraviolet Tracking Powder by Shomer-Tec can identify a theft suspect, catching them red-handed! (Actually, blue-handed). This unique fluorescent tracking powder readily transfers from objects to the fingers and hands when touched. It remains invisible except when viewed under ultraviolet (UV) light. Anyone who's touched it can be identified, as their hand will fluoresce a bright blue color when viewed under UV light.

Until now, a format that provided easy and efficient application of ultraviolet powder hasn’t been available. But this new product has changed all that — the powder is contained inside a patented powder sprayer device, which instantly and cleanly deploys a standardized application in a consistent amount and pattern each time. To deploy, aim the nozzle at the target object or area from a few inches away and then press the actuator all the way down a couple of times. It features a directionally-adjustable spray nozzle, which also prevents accidental discharges when in its locked position. This economical unit provides about 3000 sprays — less than a penny per pump!

Fluorescence is the phenomenon in which certain materials absorb ultraviolet energy and re-emit this invisible radiation in the form of visible colored light. Fluorescence occurs only while activated by UV rays; once they are removed the fluorescent glow ceases. The best fluorescent responses occur in darkness or under low-level lighting conditions. Utilization options for ultraviolet powder are extensive, including applying to objects prone to theft, fire alarm pull handles, door knobs, keyboards, etc. Powder is recommended for indoor applications, and paste for vertical surfaces and outdoor applications. (To make a UV paste, simply apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to the object and then spray the powder onto that.)

A recommended UV light source for use with this product is our Ultraviolet LED Flashlight.

Dimensions: 4.5” x 1.3”. Made in USA.

By agreeing to these Terms, you hereby certify that you are eligible to receive locksmithing devices through the mail pursuant to 39 U.S.C. Section 3002a (a) because one or more of the following terms describe either you or your business:

1. a lock manufacturer or distributor.

2. a bona fide locksmith*.

3. a bona fide repossessor.

4. a motor vehicle manufacturer or dealer.

5. sworn commissioned law enforcement officer.

These Terms were made to induce vendor to send one or more locksmithing devices as defined in 39 U.S.C. Section 3002a (b) to you through the mail and it is expressly understood that vendor will be relying upon your agreeing to these Terms contained herein in filling the undersigned’s order.

*The statute does not define the term “locksmith”. Webster’s Third New International Dictionary defines a locksmith as follows: “a worker who makes or repairs locks.” It is the position of vendor that the term “locksmith” may be deemed to include an individual or organization, a reasonable and substantial portion of whose job description includes the activities normally associated with a locksmith as that term is defined, for example, but not by way of limitation, the security or maintenance department of a hospital, tow truck operator, and so forth.
