ABC or Multi-Purpose extinguishers utilize a specially fluidized and siliconized mono ammonium phosphate dry chemical. It chemically insulates Class A fires by melting at approximately 350 F and coats surfaces to which it is applied. It smothers and breaks the chain reaction of Class B fires and will not conduct electricity back to the operator.


ABC extinguishers are used for the following types of fires:

  • Wood
  • Textiles
  • Plastic
  • Paper
  • Grease
  • Gasoline
  • Oil
  • Oil-Based Paints
  • Electrical Appliances
  • Electrical Tools
