Streetwise Pepper Spray
Streetwise offers two different grades of self-defense pepper spray. Lab Certified Streetwise 18 which is derived from 4 million SHU and Police Strength Streetwise 23 which is derived from 5 million SHU. A one second burst to the face will cause temporary blindness, choking, coughing, and nausea bringing an attacker to his or her knees and incapacitating him or her for 45 minutes without causing any permanent harm.
When it comes to protecting yourself and your loved ones, how can you really know which pepper spray is the most effective? Although many brands claim to be the best, we recommend you consider the unbiased results of an independent laboratory (Chromotec LLC) that tests the heat of the pepper once it is sprayed out of the can. This Certified Heat Rating (CHR) measures how hot the pepper spray will be once it hits your attacker after it has been mixed with propellants and passes through the air. Streetwise 18 Pepper Spray has a CHR of over 180,000 SHU and Streetwise 23 has a CHR of over 230,000 SHU making them two of the hottest, most effective self-defense sprays on the market. For comparison, competing brands were tested by the independent laboratory. They found the average heat rating to be 123,000 SHU, making Streetwise 18 over 46% hotter than the competition and Streetwise 23 over 87% hotter than the competition.
