In Singapore, the Class ABC Fire Extinguisher is also known as an AB Fire Extinguisher. This is because Class C Fires are typically easily extinguished by simply killing the power, which includes either turning off the switch or circuit breaker. If the Fire persists because the surroundings (Socket etc.) caught on fire, it would then be classified as either a Class A or B Fire.
The dry powder extinguishes the fire through a chemical reaction with the flame. When it is applied to hot and smoldering surfaces, the particles swell to form a barrier to snuff out oxygen from the source fire, thus preventing re-ignition. Removing either one of the 3 factors; heat, oxygen, or fuel will prevent any re-ignition of fire. Besides being a poor conductor of electricity, the dry powder can provide the operator with a heat shield and has a fast knock-out effect.
