Museums and Collectors

 

For years, international law enforcement agencies have struggled to prosecute offenders and repatriate stolen artifacts, due to the difficulty in identifying an object’s origins and proving the items stolen. What they needed was a sure-fire, easy method of identification, that would help them prosecute offenders, resulting in the creation of a powerful deterrent. Enter SmartWater Heritage.

Protecting our heritage

Following intensive, independent testing by renowned universities in both the US and UK, we have released a new range of specially prepared forensic solutions suitable for use on heritage items, ranging from fine art, antiques to antiquities and other collectables. After consultation with conservators from some of the world’s most renowned museums, we have developed a solution that enhances conservation techniques without compromising the fundamental principal of reversibility.

Robust marking

Special traceable liquids for use on Antiquities have been subjected to intense independent technical scrutiny by US and UK Universities, and are now available for use on a specific list of approved substrates. With potentially millions of individual codes available, no two SmartWater traceable liquids are the same, with each having its own unique forensic code, meaning that marked items can be traced back to where they came from. It is practically invisible to the naked eye but glows bright yellow under UV ‘black’ light and our scientists only need a speck to recover the embedded data.
