This unique gel formula outperforms conventional OC sprays. The maximum strength 1.4% capsaicinoids concentration is suspended in a sticky gel that sprays farther and sticks on contact to minimize cross-contamination. When used indoors, there is less chance of contaminating the surrounding areas or effecting bystanders. When used outdoors, it reduces the chance of blowback in windy conditions. The non-flammable formula will not ignite with stun guns or similar electronic devices.
