Description of Defense Technology’s Military-Style Saf-Smoke Grenade:

The Saf-Smoke™ Grenade was designed for training, but may also be used in operations. The Saf-Smoke™ Grenade offers the same approximate burn times as the Spede-Heat™ Grenade in CN or CS and the Riot Control Grenade in CN or CS. The similar burn times may make it the appropriate choice for training or simulation deployment of chemical agent canisters. The Saf-Smoke™ formulation is considered to be less toxic than Hexachloroethane (HC) smoke. The Saf-Smoke™ Grenade emits a very white smoke.
