Slovak term or phrase: argertorat
This is a dusting substance used by forensic evidence technicians (Scene of Crime officers) to make latent fingerprints visible. But I do not know if it is used as a generic term for dusting powder, or to describe a specific substance. If so, what? Thanks, colleagues!
