Latent Fingerprint Development - Powders, Brushes and Applicators
Latent Fingerprint Development
TECHNOMAXX’s LATENT fingerprint powders carry a very high reputation for being highly sensitive in the development of prints on a wide variety of surfaces. These fingerprint powders are available in various colors to fit the needs of the fingerprint expert.
Fingerprint Basic Powders
There's nothing standard about our basic powders! These powders are perfect for any variety of non-porous surfaces such as glass, finished wood, and plastic. Use with our Fiberglass / Ostrich Feather / Marabou Feather Brush, these powders, unlike many others available in the market today, does not create a “dust clouds” when being applied. Our Dual-purpose powder is a must for every fingerprint expert. This unique powder has unusual capability to develop black on light colored surfaces or a silver on dark surfaces.
Our magnetic powders get the job done perfectly on rough, grained, or porous surfaces that otherwise become heavily contaminated with standard powder. Recommended when dusting for latent prints on horizontal areas versus vertical areas, such as walls, fences, etc., as well as any non-ferrous (ability to hold a magnetic charge) evidence surface. Experience less background fill, produce cleaner prints, and you can put away those paper towels since you will have less clean up.
Perfect for dusting latent prints on rough, contaminated, and / or multi-colored surfaces. The ability of the finest particles, provides for brilliant fluorescing. Experience less mess while using less powder. These powders are to be used with our Feather Brushes.
Fluorescent Powders Available in:
Yellow - 50Gm
Green - 50GmOrange - 50GmRed - 50Gm
Fingerprint Fluorescent Magnetic Powders
Ideally used on porous, grained, and/or multi-colored horizontal surfaces. Provides double the advantages by having the two concepts combined. There is less mess, enhanced visibility of latent prints, less background fill, and cleaner prints.
Fingerprint Fluorescent Magnetic Powders Available in:

Special Purpose Fingerprint Powders
This silver/aluminium is recommended for use on glass, metallic, highly varnished surfaces, hard rubber, leather, safes or blue steel guns. Many experts prefer silver/aluminium powder due to its high sensitivity for developing latent prints on so many different surfaces. Lifts developed with silver/aluminium powder must be placed on a black backing card for optimal contrast.
Like silver/aluminium this metallic gold powder is also very special to produce solid, high-definition, high-density fingerprint ridge lines. Because of their metallic base both silver/aluminium and gold metallic provide strong reflectance for easy photography and can be used with a standard fingerprint brush, such as the marabou feather or ostrich feather or even fiber glass.
Dual orange fluorescent produces brilliant fluorescence when exposed to a forensic light source, it also provide contrast under regular lighting similar to our standard dual powder. Powder should be applied with a feather brush. Black or white backing card may be used to provide a sharp contrast with the resulting ridge detail.
Finger Print Brushes and Applicators
These latent print brushes are the result of updated and latest latent print development technologies. These brushes are unequaled because feathers are naturally smooth and feature a low friction quality. In addition fibers / feathers are corrosion and moisture resistant ensuring the finest brush even in extremely high humidity. These brushes allow the user to quickly change powder colors simply by shaking the brush free of initial powder.
Finger Print Brush
Our marabou feather duster is the best among Indian finger print duster family. Superb for use as a primary or secondary applicator of all latent print powders (basic & fluorescent). Especially suited for large area applications. Each brush comes with an individual transparent tube and cap for storage when not in use.
Ostrich Feather Finger Print Brush
We provide you with real deal in brushes. Our Ostrich feather brush works best in INDIAN conditions. We use the original imported Ostrich feathers. This Ostrich feather brushes can be used with any normal and fluorescent powders. They do not damage or scratch latent prints. Provided to you in an individual transparent tube and cap for storage.
All Purpose Finger Print Brush
This is a standard powder applicator for basic and fluorescent powders. It is very economical. We provide you with real deal in brushes. One can use our all purpose brush / applicator to apply or drop normal and fluorescent powders.
Fiberglass Filament Finger Print Brush
One of the finest brushes in the market for developing latent fingerprints. Specially selected fiberglass filaments are formed into a soft brush cluster that retains powder. Does not damage or scratch latent prints. It is an excellent high quality brush and is very expensive. Also provided to you in an individual transparent tube and cap for storage.
Finger Print Brush Magnetic Applicator
Magnetic applicators are designed for use with magnetic powder. The powder will form a cluster at the end of the applicator with a plastic leaf on it, then used as a brush to develop the latent print. Simply place the unused portion back in the jar when you have done. Easy to use, and not as messy as standard fingerprint powder. To be used on non-metallic surfaces.
Finger Print Lifting Material/Tape
You don't have to be a weightlifter to do lifting with our tapes. Our fingerprint lifting tape is made specially for lifting developed latent fingerprints. It is very strong and elastic, and will adapt easily on textured, convex and concave surfaces. The tape is crystal clear. Comes in a protective case. Available in: 1 inch, 2 inch, 3 inch, 4 inch
Finger Print Lifter (Black, White and Transparent)
Simply peel the protective backing sheet to expose a clear sticky back lifting tab, then place the tab on the powdered print, lift it, and fold down on the pre-attached backing card flap. The backing card flaps are made from heavy-duty black, white, transparent sheets and comes permanently attached to the flap lifter. Available in: 2 inch x 3 inch, 4 inch x 4 inch
Finger Print Backing Cards (Black and White)
Prints down, these cards are the only choices to ensure you have the best quality to identify and preserve your evidence. Complete with record maintenance sheet on back and feature a glossy white or black side for mounting your lifts.
Available in : 4 inch x 4 inch, 6 inch x 6 inch
Simply peel the protective backing sheet to expose a clear sticky back lifting tab, then place the tab on the powdered print, lift it, and fold down on the pre-attached backing card flap. The backing card flaps are made from heavy-duty black, white, transparent sheets and comes permanently attached to the flap lifter. Available in: 5”x7”, 3”x5”
Chemical Enhancement and Development Process
Iodine processing is used to develop prints that contain oils and fatty deposits. Iodine has been shown to be very useful on fresh prints found on porous surfaces such as paper and cardboard. Iodine fumes will produce a temporary yellow-brown print. Prints must be fixed immediately after processing because they will begin to fade. Always remember to photograph the developed prints.

Ninhydrin Kit and Spray
Ninhydrin is used for the development of latent fingerprint on porous surfaces such as paper, cardboard, and currency. This makes it an excellent choice for using on bad checks, letters, and suspected drug records. Ninhydrin produces a colored image ranging from orange to purple. Development can be accelerated by heat and humidifying the evidence.

Cyanoacrylate Fuming Gun Kit
This is a portable, hand held heat generator that instantly develops fingerprints on non-porus surfaces, including plastic, metal, enamel, varnished wood surfaces, cellophane, foils, plastic-coated papers and glass. Fitted with cartridges of ethyl Cyanoacrylate, also known as super glue. The wand heats the cartridge, which emits a vapor for fuming surface for latent prints. As a result latent print form a hard white substance, which can subsequently by dusted with fingerprint powder before lifting.
