The original, patented, fully tested FIRST DEFENSE® OC Formulation—in an improved delivery system.
A true breakthrough in aerosol performance. First Defense® 360º delivers a consistent, stream pattern at any angle, any orientation. Defense Technology's trusted 10% liquid OC formula, allows you to deliver a powerful, target-specific stream, no matter how you orient the can. You can hold the 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.
Proven over many years of safe, effective use. Today First Defense is the pepper spray of choice for law-enforcement and corrections the world over. Three out of four police departments choose First Defense® OC Aerosols by Defense Technology—not only for their proven effectiveness, but because they are the only such products backed by a comprehensive effectiveness study, and the only products that address the ever-growing concerns over health and environmental risks.
First Defense® Oleoresin Capsicum is water-soluble. It 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. At 500,000 SHU, it’s also the hottest, water-soluble OC available. Based on their extensive research, Defense Technology has determined that their 0.2% capsaicinoid level is optimum for consistent effectiveness. But because First Defense’s water-soluble OC formula decontaminates more easily then oil-based solutions, it's not so excessive that decontamination time or simplicity is compromised.
Non-flammable, environmentally sound, easy to clean. Defense Technology 5.5% Peppermace products use only food-grade OC formulations and chlorine-free propellants, making them non-flammable and biologically friendly. They contain no HCFCs or CFCs. And because the OC concentrate is water-soluble, Peppermace Fogger-delivered aerosols allow relatively easy decontamination of skin and surfaces, using soap and water. Clothing and fabrics can be cleaned by machine washing or dry cleaning. Airborne OC can be cleared from buildings with simple ventilation.
|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.
