Since 1985, Microtrace has manufactured taggant technologies, uniquely encoded materials or chemicals for brand protection and product authentication. But the original taggant technology, Microtrace's Microtaggant® Identification Particles, was developed in the 1970s by 3M for the post-detonation tracing of explosives.  Since then, Switzerland has successfully used Microtaggants to covertly track, trace and identify explosives.

While the debate regarding Microtaggants in explosives continues, Microtrace enhances and develops new taggants technologies.  Microtrace's Microtaggant, Molecular Taggant and Spectral Taggant are widely used for brand protection and product authentication and most likely are incorportated in or on products already in your home.  Brands utilize these taggants as a covert means to protect you from dangers of counterfeits, dilution of genuine materials and other sub-standard products.
