A hotter First Defense Formulation—in an improved delivery system.

The MK-3 is an ideal size for patrol officers to wear on a duty belt and will deliver 10-12 short bursts of OC at an effective range of 10-12 ft. This .4% MC OC aerosol product features a 360° stream delivery method which allows the aerosol projector to disperse OC from any angle while providing a target-specific, strong concentrated stream for greater standoff.

First Defense MK-3 360°™ combines a substantially hotter product with the latest breakthrough in aerosol performance. Utilizing compressed air with a barrier membrane separating the liquid formulation, this improved OC aerosol can deliver a powerful stream pattern of the most potent First Defense OC formula ever, at any angle, any orientation.

A true breakthrough in aerosol performance. It doesn’t matter if you hold the First Defense 360º dispenser upright, upside down, or sideways. As long as you can point the nozzle at the target and press the trigger, you can deliver an effective, controlled 10-12 ft. stream with minimal chance of cross contamination or disturbance by wind or rain compared to alternate delivery systems. No additional training or education is required.

All the attributes of the original First Defense…but with twice the heat. FIRST DEFENSE® OC Formulation was created to provide the safest OC aerosol on the market. Today the original formulation is the most widely used pepper spray in law enforcement and corrections throughout the world. Now, with First Defense MK-3, you get all the reliability and proven effectiveness, in an even hotter formulation. Its 0.4% capsaicin concentration—double the active capsaicin level of the original First Defense—provides a familiar non-lethal deterrent you can count on in the toughest situations. Without concerns about decontamination, health, or environmental risks.

First Defense® MK-3: Now more effective. Still water soluble. Like the original First Defense® Oleoresin Capsicum, First Defense MK-3 is processed further than oil-based OC to remove natural oils, waxes and fats; yielding a formulation that is clear of color and consistent in its potency. The OC manufactured for First Defense® MK-3 is water-soluble, all-food grade and thoroughly tested for effectiveness and safety. At 500,000 SHU, it’s also the hottest, water-soluble OC available. Based on their extensive research, Defense Technology has determined that the hotter 0.4% capsaicinoid level is optimum for consistent effectiveness. But because First Defense’s water-soluble OC formula decontaminates more easily then oil-based solutions, it is  not so excessive that decontamination time or simplicity is compromised.

Non-flammable, environmentally friendly, simple to clean. First Defense OC Aerosols use only food-grade formulations and safe nitrogen propellant, making them completely non-flammable and biologically sound. They contain no HCFCs or CFCs. And because First Defense is water-soluble, it allows relatively easy clean-up and decontamination of skin and surfaces, using soap and water or just a damp cloth. Clothing and fabrics can be cleaned by machine washing or dry cleaning. Airborne OC can be cleared from buildings with simple ventilation.

What is the difference between SHUs and MC%?

  • Defense Technology® no longer recognizes Scoville Heat Units (SHUs) as a viable means to measure pungency in regards to pepper spray.
  • Scoville Heat Units are a subjective measurement system dating back to the American Spice Trade. For years SHUs have been used as a measuring system within the pepper spray industry, resulting in confusion and a lack of confidence and consistency regarding the pungency and percentage of OC formulations.
  • High Performance Liquid Chromatography or HPLC, is the only true way to measure the heat of a formulation. It is a scientific method and ensures consistency. This is the standard used by Defense Technology®. The finished Defense Technology® OC formulations are tested at an independent laboratory tested for the exact percentage of major capsaicinoids (MC%).
     

COOL IT! For faster relief. Convenient COOL IT! aerosols and towelettes contain a quick-acting herbal ingredient designed to draw the oily resin of OC out of the skin.

Tested and proven—in the streets, in the lab, and in the courtroom. Defense Technology has never lost or settled a legal claim against them. Ever.
