Mikrosil® Casting Putty is used when highly detailed castings of tool and jimmy marks are required or for lifting dusted latent prints off a rough or round surface. Mikrosil® has been formulated to give excellent rendering of small details, highest contrast for microscopic observations, good releasing ability for the cast, and short curing time.

Mikrosil® is available in four colors:

  • Brown - the color which many tool mark examiners prefer; the dark color increases the visibility of detail in the casts made from tool marks, firing pin marks, breech face marks, and other marks on cartridge casings.
  • Gray - is preferred by other tool mark examiners who photograph the contrast between the light-colored surface and shadows produced from side-lighting.
  • White or Black - can be used to lift dusted latent fingerprints from rough or textured surfaces where regular lift tape will fail. Use white Mikrosil® with black powders; use black Mikrosil® with white, silver, or fluorescent powders.

To use Mikrosil®, simply mix the putty and catalyst on a mixing card with the supplied spatula and apply it to the surface being cast. Within six to eight minutes, the cast will be set. Mikrosil® even works in below freezing temperatures, creating a perfect cast within fifteen minutes!
