Mace Security International, a manufacturer of electronic surveillance and personal defense products, has announced the introduction of a new less-than-lethal personal defense device for civilian, law enforcement and military use.
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 the Taser stun gun and similar weapons, with the ability to neutralize an assailant from this distance.
The new product, which will be called Mace Gel in the civilian market and Pepper Gel in the law enforcement and military market, has been tested and will be launched into the marketplace this quarter. Mace's tests have concluded that its new gel defense device will not be ignited by a stun gun, Taser, or 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.
