Super Glue®, A Modified Technique for the Development of Latent Fingerprints



Numerous techniques and methods as well as commercially prepared kits have recently been developed using cyanoacrylate-type (Super Glue®) adhesives to develop latent fingerprints on nonporous surfaces such as glass, plastics, and metals. Of these various methods, it is felt that the use of heat makes the most efficient use of the glue and reduces the time required for development of latent prints.
