The VINMARK system utilizes proven state of the art technology to ensure that the vehicle and its parts will be permanently marked with its vehicle identification number. The VINMARK migrating gel has been developed utilizing phosphorescent technology to prevent the theft of auto parts. Removal of the imbedded application is exceptionally difficult and impossible to completely remove.
Once the patented migrating gel is applied to the surface it takes only twenty-four hours for the application to be completely cured. Parts that have the VINMARK system will always be marked and will only be visible by ultraviolet light.
Removal of the imbedded application is exceptionally difficult and impossible to completely remove. In order for a professional thief to attempt to remove the VINMARK on any body part they would have to perform the following steps. First they would have to start by removing the clear coat, Second they would have to remove the layers of paint, Third they would have to attempt to remove the VINMARK from the primer and finally they would have to grind down the part to the bare metal which would be the fourth step. This four step process would still not completely remove the VINMARK. This is why it would be worthless to the professional thief and the “chop shop”..
