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 Metro D1 Defenders and Sport D1 Defenders, and contains approximately six 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, Puerto Rico, or the Virgin Islands or internationally. May be shipped to other locations via ground service only.
