Unlike common throwaway aerosol can defense products, ASP Defenders are highly-engineered dispersion devices that use a proprietary, replaceable OC (Oleoresin Capsicum) Insert. These Inserts are precision-machined from aerospace aluminum and solid brass, and incorporate a specially-produced valve system and patented dispensing mechanism. The entire unit is O-ring sealed.
Our “Heat” formulation is maximum strength, law enforcement-grade OC: 10% Oleoresin Capsicum, 1.33% major capsaicinoids, two million Scoville Heat Units (SHU). We also offer Test Inserts, which contain a harmless, inert aerosol—we highly recommend them for practicing using your ASP Defender.
This Insert is compatible with ASP Palm Defenders, and contains approximately three 1/2-second bursts.
NOTE: Heat Inserts are date-coded to assure reliability. After the date marked on the Insert, it should be disposed of in accordance with environmental regulations in your area.
IMPORTANT: Pepper spray cannot be shipped to AK, DC, HI, MA, NY, or Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands or internationally. May be shipped to other locations via ground service only. If you are in a prohibited shipping location, click here to find your nearest ASP retailer.ASP Quick Look - OC Defenders
