Features & Applications:
The Amerex Tri-Class (ABC) Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher is effective against many types of fires, including (Type A); flammable liquids, gases, solvents, paint, lacquers, oil/gas, tar, and synthetics (Type B); and electrical equipment fires, wiring, controls, motors, appliances, and data processing panels (Type C). The fire extinguisher uses a specially fluidized and siliconized mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical that serves to insulate Class A fires by melting at approximately 350°F. It also coats the surface it is applied to. Additionally, it smothers and breaks the chain reaction of Class B fire, and there is no danger of electricity being conducted back to the user.
