How does Fire Spray’s agent compare to a dry chemical fire extinguisher’s agent?
Fire Spray is a liquid type agent that has a patent pending proprietary formula. A traditional dry chemical fire extinguisher uses one of two agents, sodium bicarbonate or baking soda for a B:C rated extinguisher and Monoammonium phosphate for the A portion of the ABC type. Whether referring to Fire Spray or either of the traditional fire extinguisher’s agents, they all operate approximately the same way. That is as they are applied to a fire (heat) they flow and smother the fire, absorbing heat energy while preventing oxygen to feed the fire. These actions are what extinguish the fire. Fire Spray and an “A” rated fire extinguisher also have the added benefit of coating and sticking to paper type fires to prevent re-ignition of the paper. Fire Spray also has the added benefits of cooling down the fire to also help prevent re-ignition while being easy to clean up. The chemical in an ABC fire extinguisher sticks to everything once heated and is very difficult to clean.
