PROTECTING VALUABLES FOR OVER HALF A CENTURY

MicroDots were used in World War II as a means of covertly communicating highly classified microscopic information beyond enemy lines.  Over the last 70 years, microdot technology has evolved into an industrial and consumer micro-identification and theft prevention tool that establishes absolute ownership.

THE MOST ADVANCED LOSS PROTECTION AVAILABLE.

MicroDots are less than one millimeter in size and are virtually invisible when applied to personal possessions. MicroDots are brushed onto both visible and hidden surfaces with a specially formulated water-based adhesive designed to encapsulate the MicroDots and prevent them from being removed.  The adhesive is designed to fluoresce under ultra-violet light source to help facilitate recovery.

CHOSEN BY THE EXPERTS

Because MicroDots significantly increase the risk of arrest and prosecution of thieves, they are endorsed and supported by insurance companies, law enforcement agencies, and other regulatory bodies around the world. The U.S. National Insurance Crime Bureau and the Australian Theft Reduction Council actively promote and recognize MicroDot marking as an effective layer of protection against vehicle theft.

THERE’S NO ONE ELSE LIKE US

There has been only one United States Patent (U.S. Patent No. 5,429,392) granted for MicroDot technology. MicroTrax uses this patented technique to manufacture and apply MicroDots.

STOPPING CRIME AROUND THE CONTINENT

Law Enforcement agencies around the world benefit from the use of MicroDot technology. At the most recent Winter Olympic Games (2010), the Royal Canadian Mounted Police used MicroDots for a comprehensive and successful program to reduce auto theft. Venue and public transit parking lots were flooded with bait cars. These bait cars were planted with property — cameras and laptops, for example —which were marked with MicroDots. This enabled police to easily identify stolen items and provide indisputable evidence in court.
