These special powder extinguishers are designed specifically to fight combustible metal fires (Class D), such as sodium, lithium, magnesium, and aluminium when in the form of swarf or powder.
The extinguishers are equipped with a special very low velocity applicator to ensure the fire fighting powder is applied efficiently and effectively to the burning metal and prevent burning swarf from spreading.
The L2 version contains powder formulated for extinguishing all metal fires including lithium.

It is important to fully consider British Standard 5306-8:2012 at clause 5.4.3 when purchasing dry powder fire extinguishers:
The discharge of a powder fire extinguisher within buildings can cause a sudden reduction in visibility and can also impair breathing, which could temporarily jeopardise escape, rescue or other emergency action. For this reason, powder extinguishers should generally not be specified for use indoors, unless mitigated by a health and safety risk assessment.
