ZARC(R) Introduces Revolutionary Pepper Spray.

GAITHERSBURG, Md. -- GAITHERSBURG, Md., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Zarc International, Inc., pioneer in the oleoresin capsicum (OC) pepper spray industry, has announced the release of its long-awaited new OC weapon -- VEXOR(R). The patented product, available only to law enforcement agencies, represents the greatest advancement in OC technology in more than 20 years.

Actually, the entire design is a significant breakthrough in aerosol spray technology, both in its actuation and in its formulation.

Although 97% of all police departments now use pepper spray as an alternative to lethal force, many officers have been reluctant to trust OC. Potency varies widely from brand to brand, and sprays low in capsaicin (the active ingredient) produce inconsistent results. VEXOR has the industry's highest and most efficient level of capsaicinoids at 1.45% -- pure capsaicinoids from which all oleoresin has been pharmaceutically removed -- and a Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) rating of 15 million.

VEXOR is not only the most potent pepper spray now available, but it is also environmentally safe and contains no chemicals that could be physically damaging to subjects or to officers who use the spray.

Unlike most other pepper sprays, VEXOR's actuator is not an "off-the- shelf" product. It was designed specifically for safe and accurate use -- indoors or out -- by law enforcement personnel, with an automatic lock to prevent accidental discharge or unauthorized use.

Blowback has been virtually eliminated. Even in windy or rainy conditions, the product can reach its target with a rotating, stream-like MicroSpin(R) pattern that spreads on impact and covers a subject's face with one shot. The reaction is immediate, and allows officers to bring subjects under control without having to escalate their use of force to a lethal level.

ZARC is the manufacturer of Cap-Stun(R), which also revolutionized the industry in 1982 when pepper spray was first introduced.
