The Sirchie Hi-Fi Volcano Latent Fingerprint Powder is a black oxide powder for developing latent (non-visible) prints on nonporous surfaces such as painted wood, metal, and most plastics. The black color of the powder enhances contrast with light-colored surfaces. The powder adheres to oily or moist deposits, particularly sebaceous secretions that may contaminate the fingertips. It produces optimal results on newer prints found on dry, smooth, non-adhesive surfaces. Excess powder can be removed using a duster (sold separately). The jar contains a 2oz. (59mL) volume of powder. Fingerprint powders are used in forensic investigations and classroom demonstrations to develop and collect fingerprint evidence.
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
