We've recently deployed Smartwater to help us protect our assets, including metal rail track components, tools, and other items attractive to light fingered morons.
SmartWater is detectable under ultraviolet light, allowing the Police and investigating teams to quickly establish its presence. The unique chemical code within the solution can be analysed to identify the true owner of any marked item. The use of this technology has resulted in more than 1,000 convictions in criminal cases around the UK, with a 100 per cent success rate where SmartWater has been presented as part of the evidence.
It means that stolen items can be quickly recovered and the thieves dealt with accordingly. Most scrap metal dealers are now refusing to handle metallic items identified with Smartwater.
