MC- “Major Capsaicinoids” are the chemical components of peppers that make them hot. Measuring MC’s is a laboratory conducted and very accurate test for gauging hotness. MC is also known as CRC or Capsaicin and Related Capsaicinoids.
OC - “Oleoresin Capsicum” is the oil extracted from the pepper that contains within it the capsaicin and related capsaicinoids.
SHU - “Scoville Heat Units” were invented in 1912 by a pharmacist named Wilbur Scoville. These units measure the amount of capsaicin (the chemical that provides the heat) in a pepper. The modern method of measuring uses high-performance liquid chromatography to accurately measure capsaicinoid content.
How it works:
• A one second burst to the face of the attacker will:
• Dilate the capillaries of the eye causing temporary blindness
• Induce choking, coughing, and nausea
• Cause mucous membranes to swell, preventing all but life support breathing
• Causes the attacker to stop immediately, almost as if hitting a wall, and turn in its tracks
UDAP's Bear Spray deterrents active ingredients is measured at 2.0% Capsaicin and Related Capsaicinoids (CRC). This is the highest value recommended for Bear Deterrent by the EPA. This produces about 3 million Scoville Heat Units (SHUs) of stopping power. UDAP's Bear deterrents contain about 10% Oleoresin Capsicum (OC). This 10% is a measurement of the OC in the can, not the hotness of the spray. The EPA does NOT recognize nor allow labeling the measurement of bear spray hotness by OC or SHU ratings. The latest most accurate means accepted for evaluating true hotness is by testing the amount of Capsaicin and Related Capsaicinoids (CRC) present in a spray.
UDAP's Bear Spray deterrent uses a fogger to dispense a large amount of Bear Spray on to a subject in a short period of time. The foggers enhanced range, broad spray pattern and inhalable particle size make it the most effective aerosol tool available to stop a bear attack.
