ETCHWise Theft Deterrent offers this product in two forms -- body paneling and window etching.
Window etching is a more discreet way for consumers to mark their vehicles. A simple stencil, with a specific and individual code, is placed on any window on the car. Using the etching cream, which comes with the stencils, a dealership is able to literally etch this particular code into the glass, making it a permanent way to trace the vehicle.
Thieves, who often steal vehicles in order to sell the expensive window glass, will see this code etched into the windows and know immediately that the vehicle is protected. This will often prevent anyone from being willing to purchase the stolen glass from the thief. Therefore, thieves don't want anything to do with vehicles that are protected with ETCHWise window etching.
