Forensics Source Lightning Powder Now Available in an Aerosol Spray

JACKSONVILLE, Florida Safariland™, a BAE Systems line of business, announces that its Lightning Powder® is now available in a convenient aerosol spray.  Lightning Spray™ Aerosol Fingerprint Powder is the latest innovation in forensic latent fingerprinting technology, and is offered by Forensics Source™, Safariland’s full range collection of forensics products.

Lightning Spray Powder provides a controlled, consistent application of powder to the suspected print area. There is less waste than the traditional method of using powder and brushes. The spray powder can also be applied to a wide variety of surfaces, including vertical and overhead areas where conventional dusting methods do not work. It is also the cleanest way to apply powder when used in conjunction with Lightning Spray’s proprietary disposable spray tents that limit powder residue to a confined area.
Lightning Spray Aerosol Fingerprint Powder is available in convenient two-ounce cans that contain up to 300 sprays. The MSRP is $21.95. It is also offered in a variety of individual and kit configurations to meet users’ needs. Current powder offerings include the most popular Lightning Powders in black, white, silver/gray and RedWop™.

“Until now, the only method available for fingerprinting was applying powder with a variety of brushes,” said Eric Schellhorn, Director, Category Marketing, Investigation & Examination. “This spray makes it much easier for law enforcement personnel to successfully and economically lift clean prints.”
