Maus Stixx quickly fights the fire when the product is exposed at a temperature of 380°C (this is typically within three to five seconds of the fire starting). A chemical reaction releases harmless inert gases that encapsulate and extinguish the burning particles in the space.
Fires can occur in white goods when dust collects on the compressors and cooling coils that clog air circulation. Heat from a compressor may be enough for the dust to ignite, or the insulation material in appliance may also ignite.
Simply remove the protective film on the Maus Stixx and apply the sticker side directly above the compressor of the appliance.
