Engineering Solutions to aid Traceability

SmartWater’s robust traceable liquids are used by Engineers to track, authenticate or validate manufactured components that are difficult to mark in a conventional way, therefore leaving them potentially exposed to quality control, product recall, warranty or ‘passing off’ issues.

Liquid Data

Our award-winning scientists have created a new medium for carrying data – water. Millions of data-sets are available which, due to the water medium, can be applied to most surfaces and substrates, no matter how small in size. Precise engineering data, such as production date, location and item number, can be encoded within the water then applied to a component.

Robust Solutions

SmartWater traceable liquids are resistant to excessive heat caused by blast temperatures, humidity, UV sunlight, acids and other solvents. The unique forensic signature within the solutions can be applied as a coating onto many types of substrate, thereby providing Original Equipment Manufacturers with critical production data, even after a catastrophic failure of the component, including when destroyed by fire.

Internationally accredited

SmartWater operates to the highest technical accreditation and its scientific staff are recognized as experts in their field by the international Courts. To illustrate, the laboratory analytical technique is accredited to ISO17025, a prerequisite standard of the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors. Also, the Company’s Information Security Systems are accredited to ISO27001 and administrative processes to ISO9001.

But SmartWater not only achieves standards but sets them also, having been the driving force for the creation of BSI PAS:820, the specification for measuring the robustness of traceable liquids.

Responsive Support

Our approach to working with Clients is consultative, entrepreneurial and flexible, operating around the clock if needs be. We understand the pressures on maintaining production timescales or the need to identify recall data, so can adapt our processes to meet most circumstances, even to providing full technology transfer, complete with training and support package to enable in-house analysis to shorten response times in the extraction of production data.
