A catalytic converter can be stolen in a matter of seconds and may only be worth £100-£200 in scrap value but the cost to you could be over £1,000 in repairs plus the cost of disruption to your business or journey.

SmartWater’s High Temperature Marker is specifically formulated to provide robust forensic traceability for your catalytic converter and each solution comes with our 100,000-mile durability guarantee.

SmartWater was the first forensic coding manufacturer to achieve a Grade A External classification as part of a Publicly Available Specification published by the British Standards Institution (PAS 820:2012). This means our forensic products have been independently tested to last the equivalent of 5 years in external weather conditions.
