Less-lethal OC weapons are now available in a gel form from Mace Security International. Take Down 10-percent pepper gel is a nontoxic, nonflammable, water-soluble gel that contains 1.4 percent capsaicinoids concentration and has more range than Mace stream products. Because it's a sticky gel that clings to the target's face, it causes minimal cross-contamination when deployed. And although it's hot and sticky, it won't clog a subject's breathing passages.
