Pepper spray or animal repellent spray - what's the difference?

Pepper spray or animal repellent spray - what's the difference?

What is the difference? In terms of biological/chemical composition, practically none.
With the label “animal repellent spray”, this medium does not fall under the weapons law and can
acquired and used by anyone, without age restrictions.
The animal repellent spray is solely for self-defense or emergency aid.
Important: If there is no self-defense, the person will commit dangerous bodily harm when using animal repellent spray.

Composition; The animal repellent spray is made from chili or pepper plants.
Depending on the quality (dilution), an active ingredient OC (Oleresin Capsicum) is produced from the resin oil (oleoresin).

Depending on the dilution of the OC, there are different qualities offered on the market.
These are given as a percentage of the OC per liter or 100 ml (severity level/Scoville scale).
However, the information on this is very different. Some manufacturers only provide the Scoville value of pure capsaicin.
The US pepper spray Saber Red is regularly “awarded” as the most effective pepper spray at the largest arms fair in the world (Shot Show).

How to use pepper spray:
The usual cans must be held vertically with the test head pointing upwards. The substance cannot be positioned sideways or “overhead”.
be sprayed effectively. Saber Red has Crossfire cans that can be felt in all positions.
It is important to use the thumb to operate the trigger; pushes down.
The index finger automatically pushes the aiming direction down; i.e. you don't hit the attacker.
So hold the animal repellent spray in the “thumbs up” position. Aim at the target with a knitted arm, enough distance from it
Contaminating object and spray into the right head (mucous membranes). It is important that the attacker is observed during defense.

1. The attacker has been hit with the substance. 2. Sets up a reaction; important: the attacker is stopped!

Always keep your distance from the attacker; e.g. the attacker continues to reach the victim despite a contaminated face -> always maintain the distance and
If necessary, continue spraying. Depending on the attacker's physical condition, alcohol/drug influence or the quality of the pepper spray, the effect can be delayed.
We found no experience or information on the internet of any reaction after contamination with pepper spray.
Pepper spray always works; both in very hot and cold conditions. A distinction is also made between the different states of the substance to be sprayed.
Here you have the liquid, the foam and the gel. With liquids you can “target” “ballistically” very well and the pressure, i.e. the speed of the medium, is optimal.
The heavier gel, for example, is perfect for use in enclosed spaces. An evaporation/evaporation of the OC is hardly noticeable and the
Contamination is very effective because the gel or foam foams up when it hits it, similar to shaving foam because the particles of the active ingredient are completely bound to the foam/gel. The viscous active ingredient (gel/foam) also sticks to the attacker for a longer period of time. The “firmer” materials are also more wind-stable.
