Fingerprint Powders & Brushes
Description: SIRCHIE®'s "HI-FI" volcano latent print powders offer the best sensitivity, adherence qualities and reproduction capabilities of any powders available. Use them to produce excellent results. All SIRCHIE® latent fingerprint powders are packaged with desiccant capsules for storing extended periods (over 12 months) without moisture contamination.
Description: "SIRCHIE®'s "HEAVY" volcano latent print powder is unique because it features density characteristics not found in normal powders, yet maintains the same sensitivity criteria. This powder is formulated especially for assignments requiring a less mobile latent print powder.
Description: SIRCHIE®'s "HI-FI" Dual Purpose Latent Print Powders are excellent when used with or without an ultraviolet light. Developed prints emit a green glow when exposed to ultraviolet light in subdued light-regardless of the background color.
Description: SIRCHIE®'s "HI-FI" silver/black latent print powder is a two-color powder that will contrast with any color surface. This unique formulation will develop black on light-colored surfaces and silver on dark-colored surfaces. All lifted prints dusted with this powder may be mounted on white backing cards for contrast. Contents: 2 oz. (59 ml).
Description: "This powder combines the "STICK" characteristics of silver metallic powder and the "SLIP" characteristics of silk gray powders. Use it on all glass, plastic laminates, metallic surfaces, high-gloss enamel or varnish surfaces, hard rubber, thermoset plastics and blue-steel weapons. Contents: 2 oz. (59 ml).
Description: This two-color powder offers unique contrast capabilities with any color surface. It develops bright red on light-colored surfaces and silver on dark-colored surfaces. Use it on metal surfaces such as safes and filing cabinets. This powder also features the unique attributes of both metallic and oxide powders. Contents: 2 oz. (59 ml).
Description: "SIRCHIE®'s "HI-FI" coin box/galvanic latent print powder is specially formulated to develop latent prints on oily vending machine coin boxes or galvanized surfaces such as window and door flushings, drain pipes, gutters and trash cans. Use this powder in place of older print development methods, such as smoking prints with camphor or magnesium, which are timeconsuming, difficult and hazardous. Contents: 2 oz. (59 ml).
Magnetic Latent Print Powders
Description: SIRCHIE®'s magnetic latent print powders feature superior ferrous compounds thanks to a unique ballmilling process which ensures uniform, textured powders-every time. These powders are the finest available. Use on any nonferrous surface and with any of our magnetic applicators.
Description: MAGNUCLEI™ Magnetic Latent Print Powder is the result of years of research and development. SIRCHIE®'s regular magnetic powders are already the best available, but there was a need for a dual purpose powder for finer dusting applications. MAGNUCLEI™ utilizes powders that have been milled to average particle sizes that are less than half the size of regular magnetic powders. This powder is very effective on glass, plastic, wood, ceramic, and metallic surfaces - use on paper surfaces without leaving dark backgrounds. It works well on imitation and genuine leather if developed within a short time of being handled. (Application of MAGNUCLEI™ does not interfere with ninhydrin, DFO, or other chemical treatments.)

Fluorescent Latent Print Powders
Lightning Fluorescent Powder
Description: Fluorescent Latent Print Powders may be used on the same surface types as non-fluorescent powders. Fluorescent latent print powders work especially well on dark or multicolored surfaces-greatly enhancing ridge details when illuminated with an ultraviolet light. Typically, light in the ultraviolet or blue parts of the spectrum (254nm to 525nm) is used to excite the fluorescence."
Fluorescent Magnetic Powders
Description: SIRCHIE®'s Fluorescen Magnetic Latent Print Powders feature bright pigments, superior ferrous compounds and an antismudge additive to ensure superior results when dusting for latent prints. These powders are especially useful when used on multicolored backgrounds. They can be applied with virtually all magnetic powder applicators. View dusting area with an ultraviolet blue or green forensic light source (254nm to 365nm) to see results.
Description: This powder combines the "nocontact" advantage of magnetic powder with a highly fluorescent compound for use on multicolored backgrounds. The natural color is silver/gray, however, it appears bright yellow/green when illuminated with an ultraviolet light. Volume: 2 oz.
