Ataraxia Pepper Gas / Canister

Staraxia Pepper Spray


Pepper Spray also known as OC spray (from “Oleoresin Capsicum’) is a chemical compound that irritates the eyes to cause tears, pain and even temporary blindness. Also used in policing, riot control, crowd control and personal self-defence. It’s inflammatory effects causes temporary blindness. Oleoresin Capsicum is a highly effective NON-LETHAL pepper gas spray which will incapacitate an intruder for up to an hour. It is humanly impossible to remain in areas where the pepper gas was sprayed. The pepper gas canister is a 500ml canister and gives you 60 seconds spray time. The canister is pressured at 8 bar which mean that the 4 seconds spray time is more than enough to fill the room of 64m2 sufficiently. Total spray time = 60 seconds (15 x 4 seconds). The unit resets itself after 1 minute and ready to spray again should someone try to break in again.

Our pepper gas is SABS approved. (None of our competitors offer such large canisters)
