Mace’s new advanced product is a sticky gel that has a 10% pepper formulation. The sticky gel can be contained in various sized canisters, and is propelled out of the canister by compressed air. The product is a less-than-lethal personal defense device that has the ability to neutralize an assailant from up to 25 feet away. Mace believes that there are no other less-than-lethal personal defense devices on the market, including a stun gun, Taser and similar weapons, with the ability to neutralize an assailant from this distance. Mace’s tests have concluded that its new gel defense device will not be ignited by a stun gun, Taser and similar weapons. This is an important feature for law enforcement and military agencies currently utilizing electronic weapons. The new product has a unique formulation because it is suspended in a gel instead of a liquid stream. The gel formulation results in several new advantages.
