This is a newly developed extinguishing medium that is effective on all three types of fire and is CLEAN. It leaves little or no residue upon application. By far, this is the best choice extinguisher for general usage in the house or in an office.
This extinguisher is meant for general usage. It is useful for Class A, B and C fires. This fire extinguisher can handle most fires that occur in the household or in a normal office environment. Upon discharge, it will leave a blanket of non-flammable material on the extinguished material that reduces re-ignition. A main disadvantage for this type of extinguisher is that it makes a mess upon discharge – but if the choice is between a fire or a mess, of course take the mess.
his extinguisher are meant for Class B & C fires but does not work well with Class A fires because the material usually re-ignites. Although it leaves no harmful residue, it is however a green house gas that contributes heavily to global warming. In addition, it is much heavier compared to the other extinguishers that may not be easily handled.
This extinguisher is suitable for most fires caused by Class A fires (burning paper) and Class B fires (burning liquid). However, as it essentially a water based mixture, it cannot be used for Class C electrical fires.
This extinguisher or extinguishing medium is only suitable for Class A fires only and not for Class B, C, or D fires such as burning liquids, electrical fires, or metal fires as it will cause the fire to spread and aggravate the situation.
