University of Utah reports 30% heat failure rate in pepper sprays September 19 2016
A 30% heat failure rate in pepper spray products was reported by the University of Utah in its Quantitative Analysis of Capsaicinoids in Fresh Peppers, Oleoresin Capsicum and Pepper Spray Products, owing to the industry’s “few, if any, analytical measures to determine the concentration of active ingredients in the product and to ensure consistent chemical composition.”
100% dependability when it comes to maximum heat is extremely important, particularly when it comes to bear spray - which is approximately 40% stronger than human defence pepper spray and approximately 84% stronger than dog deterrent pepper spray. The producers of Frontiersman and SABRE Wild bear spray are the only manufacturer with an exclusive in-house high performance liquid chromatography laboratory, an analytical measurement facility that scientifically guarantees maximum strength, every single time to eliminate these 30% failures. This technology is the only way to ensure there are no pepper spray failures on the basis of heat inconsistency and eliminates the possibility of bad batches.
