UV Theft Detection Smart Grease

UV Theft Detection Smart Grease


UV THEFT and TAMPER Detection Smart Grease.

The purpose of UV DYETECTIVE Smart Grease is to assist in identifying someone who has come into contact with an object, item or surface secretly primed with this product. It is usually used to help identify an opportunist THIEF or miscreant who is TAMPERING with something they shouldn’t!

It is a virtually invisible UV revealing grease suitable for use on most surfaces and materials. DYETECTIVE Smart Grease contains harmless microscopic particles which only become visible under ultraviolet light and can potentially remain on the hands, skin and clothing (unless washed-off) for several hours.

Suitable for use most materials and surfaces:  Metal, wood, paper, card, plastic, clothing and fabrics.

Suitable for use indoors and outdoors.

This is a harmless UV-revealing grease and is not a skin-staining product. It will wash off when not required.

Note:  Theft Detection Grease is a simple solution that has been around for many years. However it is somewhat restricted in what you can do with it, and has limited effectiveness.

The good news is that we have now developed a range of NEXT GENERATION Theft Detection Tools, Powered by LUVINOL ™  A new, invisible, skin-staining theft detection gel, which will provide superior Proof-of-Contact with no risk of accidental ‘cross-marking’ of innocent colleagues or surfaces (a real possibility when using dry-powder products!)

This product requires a UV Forensic Torch to reveal its presence (Not supplied)

GLOWTEC Quality Assured.  If it doesn’t bear our name then its not the same!

British Made. Prices exclude VAT and Delivery.




UV DYETECTIVE Smart Grease is a opaque film that when lightly applied over a white or light coloured surface should not be noticeable nor attract the curious! Use sparingly as only a little is required in order to identify a contact.

Under normal (day) light conditions the Smart Grease is virtually invisible, however, when exposed to a UV Forensic Torch every microscopic particle will blaze a bright fluorescent green.  This is a very rare property not found in any other widely available commercial product and therefore highly unlikely to be confused with any other substance.

Once physical contact is made, it takes just a little of the grease to remain on a person’s skin, clothes or hair to clearly identify them.

Smart Grease can be used indoors and out and is suitable for use in wet areas such as bathrooms, washrooms and kitchens etc.

How to use

Smear a thin coating of  Smart Grease on to door / drawer handles, keys, cash box, keys etc. For door handles and outdoor use – you can use Smart Grease for its water and wind-proof  properties.

Investigate quickly! Do not leave it too long before you look for traces of Smart Grease on a suspect. The grease can transfer from one person to another and one surface to another which may potentially produce false positives!

When there is no further need for the product, clean the prepared surfaces to remove it. Smart Powder on hands and clothing will be removed when washed.
