Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fire Suppression Agent
Carbon dioxide is most effective on Class B and Class C fires and has non-conductive properties, so it can be used on electrical (anything plugged in) fires and is residue-free and will not cause corrosive destruction to electrical equipment. When the carbon dioxide is discharged from the cannister it expands and cools the surrounding air as it extinguishes the fire.
