WHAT DOES ATA MEAN?
ATA stands for: Alternative Technologically Advanced Systems Incorporated.
WHAT IS THE ATA ALARM MADE OF?
The inflammatory agent in Alarm Spray is a derivative of hot cayenne pepper. The oil is extracted from the pepper using a high pressure process. This process leaves you with the active ingredient known as OC or Oleoresin Capsicum. The pure pepper extract is then diluted in an inert ingredient that reduces the SHU or Scottville Heat Unit to get it down to usable SHU for pepper spray. SHU is a unit of measurement that determines how hot the substance is.

HOW DOES THE ATA ALARM WORK?
Alarm Spray's active ingredient is OC or Oleoresin capsicum. The OC is derived from Cayenne peppers are some of the hottest peppers in the world. OC is an inflammatory agent. Contact with mucous membranes (eyes, nose, throat, and lungs) causes immediate dilation of the capillaries. This can result in temporary blindness and instant inflammation of the breathing tube tissues and systematically cuts of all but life support breathing. OC will also create an intense burning sensation o the surface of the skin. However, OC will cause no lasting after effects. The effects remain for up to 45 minutes. OC is an inflammatory agent and not an irritant and therefore is effective on those who feel no pain such as psychotic and those under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
WILL MY PEPPER SPRAY EXPIRE?
Yes. That is why we provide a log service card with the purchase of alarm spray. OC will not deteriorate with age but the propellant may escape from the seats and lose its aerosol pressure. Any use of the spray beyond expiration date is HIGHLY inadvisable. We strongly advise you to service your ATA Alarm by the end of its expiry date. That way you are always assured of the pressure of the Pepper Spray.
HOW MANY USES ARE THERE PER CONTAINER?
When the alarm is triggered, the entire content of the container is emptied for maximum effectiveness.
HOW WILL TRAINING BE HANDLED?
ATA Systems Incorporated will be issuing to its distributors and detailed instructional video and manual for its product. In addition distributors will be able to attend training seminars to further enhance understanding.
