Example of use:

A threatening letter was addressed to the US Trade Center in Stockholm. A paper pad of the same size as the letter was found in the home of a suspect.

With the use of the DOCUSTAT DS-210 system it was possible to visualize the indented writing and consequently it was proofed that the suspect had written the threatening letter. This technique often works also on the second and third page down from the original depending on how hard the writer pressed down his pen.

The securing of the traces is made by charging the plastic film, type IW, with the corona unit. After that the developing powder is used and the traces secured with the adhesive film.
