Pepper Spray – How Does It Work?
In the past few years, pepper sprays have become a common sight in our homes. They are available in many different forms and shapes, but one thing they all have in common is that they can be used as a personal self defense weapon.
Mace brand pepper sprays are one of the most popular brands of pepper spray on the market today. They are designed to give you the ability to defend yourself against a violent attacker. They are also known as OC (oleoresin capsicum) spray or OC spray. The name comes from the active ingredient in the spray, which is oleoresin capsicum.
The spray itself has an odorless, tasteless liquid that is made up of oleoresin capsicum, a chemical that gives the spray its distinctive smell and taste. This chemical is also the main component of other household products such as cayenne peppers, Tabasco sauce and wasabi.
How Does It Work?
When you use the spray, it will release a mist that covers the area around you. The mist contains oleoresin capsicum and is made up of two chemicals: oleoresin capsicum itself and acetone. Oleoresin capsicum is the main component of the spray, and is the chemical that gives it its distinct taste and smell. Acetone is a solvent that dissolves the rest of the ingredients and allows them to be sprayed.
As soon as the spray is released, it begins to work immediately. When the spray comes into contact with your attacker’s eyes, nose or mouth, the chemical in the spray will begin to irritate the eyes, nose and mouth. The chemical will cause the eyes to water, the nose to run and the mouth to swell. The more the chemical irritates the attacker, the more violent he will become.
The effect of the spray will last anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the concentration of the spray. It is recommended that you only use the spray once or twice, because it will lose its effectiveness after repeated use. The spray is also not effective if it gets in your eyes, so be sure to keep your hands away from your face when you are using it.
How Effective Is It?
The spray is extremely effective when used against a person who is attacking you. It is designed to temporarily incapacitate an attacker and give you time to get away. The spray is very powerful and will cause the attacker to stop breathing and to lose consciousness within seconds of being sprayed.
