Found with a cream label on the extinguisher marking it as Foam. These will be commonly found where there is multiple risk of combustion, for example flammable liquids and materials. Being able to cover and cool down the ignited materials allows the flame to be starved of oxygen and put out. This makes the foam extinguisher one of the most commonly used and effective extinguishers. Once the flame has died the foam then absorbs into the material stopping it from reigniting. Perfect for fighting Class A and Class B fires. Not recommended for use on electrical equipment even when power source is removed as will damage the device beyond repair.
