Bear Spray Specifications 



The Pepper Power® Fogger is the most efficient way to dispense large amounts of OC on to a subject in the shortest period of time. The fogger’s enhanced range, broad spray pattern and inhalable particle size make it the most effective aerosol tool available to Stop a bear attack. Simply by virtue of its ability to disperse large amounts of OC into the area.

UDAP Bear Spray Defined


No Bear Spray Hotter!

UDAP's Bear Deterrent’s active ingredients is measured at 2.0% Capsaicin and Related 

Capsaicinoids (CRC). This is the highest % value recommended for Bear Deterrent by the EPA. 


Definitions Below

The active ingredients are measured by the actual chemical hotness of the pepper, which is the CRC. UDAP’s Bear Deterrent is rated at the maximum the EPA recommends, on which is 2.0%. This produces about 3 million Scoville Heat Units (SHUs) of stopping power. Our Bear Deterrents contain about 10% OC. This 10% is a measurement of the OC in the can, not the hotness of the spray. The EPA does NOT recognize nor allow labeling the measurement of bear spray hotness by OC or SHU ratings. The latest most accurate means accepted for evaluating true hotness is by testing the amount of CRCs present in a spray.

UDAP’s personal sprays are rated at 1.34% CRC, which is the same rating as our bear sprays were in the years preceding 1999. This produces about 2 million SHUs of stopping power. Our personal sprays contain about 10% OC, also again the primary deciding factor of hotness in a pepper spray is the CRC rating. The active chemicals in OC are Capsaicin and Related Capsaicinoids (CRC), making this the only true determining factor for active ingredients in pepper sprays. Another way to look at this is:  Of the 10% OC –13.4% are active ingredients We have chosen the above balances of CRCs and propellant for a sophisticated dispersal system in our sprays to get the active ingredients out with a sudden hissing sound creating a billowing pepper cloud that is slow to dissipate, making it a more effective means of stopping an attack.  We also utilize the most advanced technologies and products in producing both our bear deterrents and our personal sprays, in order to generate quality products that consumers can feel secure in using.



CRC –  “Capsaicin and related Capsaicinoids” are the chemical components of peppers that make them hot. Measuring by CRC’s is a laboratory conducted and very accurate test for gauging hotness.

OC – “Oleoresin Capsicum” is the oil extracted from the pepper that contains within it the capsaicin and related capsaicinoids. Appearance is a redish brown liquid.

SHU – “Scoville Heat Units” were invented in 1912 by a pharmacist named Wilbur Scoville. These units measure the amount of capsaicin (the chemical that provides the heat) in a pepper. Measuring by SHU’s (Scoville Heat Units) is a subjective taste test.

PROPELLANT – The liquid propellant 134A is used in all of UDAP Industries’ products to ensure a safe and effective means of discharging the active ingredients in the sprays. Vapor Pressure: 96 lbs. at 77F

Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) is the oil that comes out of the pepper plant. Capsaicin is the chemical that is measured in the OC. Therefore, the active ingredients are the capsaicin and related capsaicinoids. Our bear sprays are approximately 10% OC of 3 million SHU. 20% of the OC is Capsaicin and related capsaicinoids, making the active ingredient rated at 2.0%. Bear sprays must be between 1.0% and 2.0% Capsaicin and related capsaicinoids,

Spray Pattern Test

UDAP Industries had testing done in a laboratory to find out the average spray pattern of the product UDAP Pepper Power® Bear Deterrent.

Objective: To identify the following spray pattern Characteristics for UDAP Pepper Power® Bear Deterrent: Range, Height of Pattern, Width of Pattern, And Average Diameter of Pattern were recorded.



Wind Speed: N/A - Interior Test Range ( wind < 3mph) 

Temperature: Use thermometer

Spray Diameter: measure spray pattern at six different distances ( 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 feet). Spray large sheet of white paper at different ranges and measure the spray pattern residue on the paper. Measure the spray pattern residue vertically and horizontally.

Below is the results from the test:
