What is Dry Ice?

Dry Ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide. 

Dry Ice temperature is extremely cold at -109.3°F or -78.5°C. Always handle Dry Ice with care and wear protective clothing or gloves whenever touching it.

Dry ice is colorless, non-flammable.

Use Dry Ice Safely

Carbon dioxide gas is heavier than air, and therefore, it can pool in basements or other low areas.

When transporting dry ice, always keep vehicle windows open to bring in fresh air.

The quantity of dry ice used in a regular freezer or refrigerator is unlikely to produce carbon dioxide gas in sufficient quantity to cause a health problem. Dry ice can readily be used to keep foods cool in those types of containers.
