High protection Military Insect Repellent containing 30% DEET for maximum protection against biting insects and
the harmful diseases they can carry throughout the World.
Historically, in every military conflict, combat power has been reduced more significantly by disease and non-battle injuries (DNBI) than from direct combat casualties. A large number of diseases affecting the troop strength of deployed units is directly attributed to disease-carrying arthropods. Moreover, arthropods can inflict severe physical, psychological, and economic stresses that threaten the military mission. Not only do they transmit disease, but the bites they inflict can be painfully distracting and can lead to devastating secondary infections, or allergic reactions.
Developed specifically for use by soldiers, this high quality, Military Insect Repellent Lotion contains 30% DEET in a controlled-realease, sweat-resistant polymer base, to provide maximum and cost-effective protection against all types of biting insects and the dangerous diseases they can carry.
The polymer in the formulation slows the absorption and evaporation of DEET, thereby holding it on the surface of the skin where it can continue to repel arthropods for an 'extended' period of time. Laboratory testing shows that the extended-duration DEET lotion provides 6 hours of at least 95% protection against a variety of mosquito species in a tropical environment, 10 hours in a hot, dry environment, and 12 hours in a forested/wet environment.
Military Insect Repellent Lotion in convenient 2oz tubes is non-greasy with a mild neutral odour. Also free of alcohol and is therefore safe for soldiers to stow for travel by air, land or sea. DEET based repellent HAS BEEN THE MILITARY SKIN REPELLENT OF CHOICE since 1990.
The product is a dedicated Military insect repellent formulation specifically designed for soldiers operating in extreme environments where maximum protection against arthropods and other biting insects is essential.
