Did you know...

Vehicles, Catalytic Converters, Agricultural Equipment, Residential and Commercial Thefts/Robberies are steadily increasing across the United States, and the international Supply Chain. These crimes cause not only property loss, but also safety issues for the company, owner, and the consumer.  It creates delays, shutdowns, thousands and sometimes millions of dollars in costs for everyone involved. Many hours are exhausted in investigations by Law Enforcement agencies who can find it difficult to prove ownership of property or placing the suspect at the scene of the crime. Other solutions or traditional marking / identification methods are either relatively expensive or can easily be overcome by criminals. Cambridge Federal has a proven effective solution! Let us explain...


How it works...

The SmartTrace product contains a 1-in-a-billion forensic code visible only under a specific UV wavelength light. Forensic Codes are not repeated and are registered to the Property Owner, effectively proving ownership and authentication of products and assets. Once the “Forensic Code” is identified by Law Enforcement and/or a certified SmartWater trained personnel on an Asset or Property, they collect a small sample, then send to a SmartWater Certified lab. The Lab processes the sample and the code is then identified, linking and authenticating it back to the original registered source. All “Forensic Coding” water-based solutions are classified as Non-Hazardous.
