Forensics UK provide forensic glass examination and expert witness services.
Forensics UK experts are able to differentiate between different sources of glass.
It is a common misconception that all glass is the same. The nature of the raw materials, glass manufacturing process and final application results in variations in the physical and chemical characteristics of the glass.
This allows a forensic glass expert to determine whether or not the findings are likely that the glass fragments found on the suspect’s clothing originated from the window (or other glass object) at the scene. Glass is therefore an extremely useful evidence type at any scene where broken glass is encountered: robberies, burglaries, assaults with bottles, road traffic accidents, criminal damage etc.
