SmartWater is a colourless liquid solution that is simply dabbed onto the uneven surfaces of valuables.
It can be used to code all sorts of items such as jewellery, ornaments, electrical items and even motor vehicles. Each bottle contains a unique chemical 'code' which is registered to you - conclusively proving ownership. It cannot be easily seen by the naked eye and is almost impossible to remove. The liquid glows under ultraviolet light making it easy for the police to detect.
The police use it in undercover operations to catch and convict offenders. Criminals know about SmartWater and fear its power to forensically link them with the scene of the crime.
