Upon impact, a PepperBall® rounds burst to create a 12-foot cloud of pepper irritant that rapidly disperses into the air to quickly incapacitate an attacker. Within seconds, the saturation area extends in all directions around the point of impact. With this active defense zone, a direct hit is not required. Simply striking the ground in close proximity to your target is often enough to diffuse a threat.
The dust cloud created by a PepperBall® is made of our proprietary, pharmaceutical-grade PAVA pepper powder. Exposure to it will cause an immediate reaction in the eyes, nose, throat and chest of an attacker. The response decisive and debilitating, allowing you time to exit the situation and get help. The effects, however, are not permanent and will cease after approximately 15 minutes.
