Q: Are there any unusual fire & explosion hazards with Krishna Colors?
A: Like all organic and most dry chemicals, as a powder or dust, this product (when mixed with air in critical proportions and in the presence of an ignition source) may present an explosion hazard. The minimum ignition temperature reported for dry cornstarch, through 200 mesh, is 380°C (716°F). Avoid open lights, flames, smoking materials, hot coals of any type or welding in area of product. Not recommended for indoor usage. Outdoor usage in well ventilated open space.
Q: What is the most appropriate fire extinguisher media to have on hand at events or to extinguisher solid material or air borne dust?
A: Water spray, foam and dry chemical. Use of water jet many cause explosive dust conditions. Do not use CO2 (carbon dioxide fire extinguishers) for outdoor dust fires. CO2 fire extinguishers are ineffective at extinguishing outdoor dust fires because they may not be able to displace enough oxygen to successfully put the fire out and they can cause the dust to spread, smolder and re-ignite.
Q: Are there any measures to control the dust created from Celebration Powder?
A: The use of misters is a highly effective method for reducing dust while also creating an open air cooling effect for outdoor events. Misters can be purchased at most big box stores or larger portable systems are available as rental items.
Misters reduce dust in the air by trapping dust in water particles and causing it to fall out of the air.
