Dry Ice is the solid form of Carbon dioxide (CO2) with a temperature of -109.3 degrees Fahrenheit (-78.5 degrees Centigrade). Dry Ice is most commonly used for freezing and keeping things frozen without the mess since it changes directly from a solid to a gas (sublimation), hence the name "Dry Ice."

Useful Dry Ice Information

Store Dry Ice in a thermally insulated container. The thicker the Insulation , the slower it will sublimate - turn into carbon dioxide gas (CO2).

 

For Cooling: Place the Dry Ice under your items, preferably with cardboard seperating the items from physically contacting the Dry Ice.

For Freezing: Place Dry Ice on top of your items.

Safety Precautions

  • Dry Ice is a skin and eye irritant; use gloves to handle.

  • Dry Ice is harmful or fatal if eaten or swallowed.

  • Avoid contact with skin, mouth, eyes, and clothing.

  • May cause severe frostbite or burns.

  • If eaten or if frostbite occurs, seek medical help immediately.

  • Wear hand protection whenever touching Dry Ice.

  • Welding gloves or a thick folded towel will work.

  • If Dry Ice has been in a closed vehicle, room, or walk-in: open the doors and allow adequate ventilation before entering.

  • When transporting Dry Ice inside a vehicle, be sure to have proper ventilation. Leave area containing Dry Ice if you start to pant or breathe quickly.
