Trace-in-Metal – A breakthrough in metal-marking technology

Tom Reeve, Editor of SecurityNewsDesk, meets John Minary and Digby Ram of Trace-in-Metal to discuss their innovative method for the prevention of metal theft.

Thousands of hard metal microdots are infused in the lead, which survive melting. Each microdot is engraved with a unique code which is registered on a national database.

Scrap metal dealers wishing to prevent stolen metal crossing their gates can purchase equipment through and order free signage which advertises that they have the means to detect Trace-in-Metal and other marking systems.

Trace-in-Metal’s online witness and victim impact statements also help save police and tax authorities hours of investigation time.
