What is Dry Ice?

Dry Ice is Carbon Dioxide (CO) in solid form frozen to -78˚ C. The unique properties of Dry Ice make it an attractive resource in a wide range of Industrial and Domestic sectors. Dry Ice does not melt to water, instead it converts into gas and that´s why it´s called Dry Ice. Dry Ice is produced by compressing and cooling gaseous CO into liquid, and then allowing it to expand to produce CO snow. The Dry Ice snow is then compressed by a hydraulic press into convenient sized blocks, slices and pellets.

What is Dry Ice used for?

Dry Ice is often used for transportation of food or medical products and can also be used as a special effect. Its benefits also makes Dry Ice ideal for Industrial Cleaning. It offers environmental solutions in the removal of surface contaminants through blast cleaning using Dry Ice pellets.

How long does Dry Ice last?

We recommend you to purchase Dry Ice only for your immediate or short-term use. The durability of Dry Ice is variable and significantly affected by other factors such as the quantity of Dry Ice in the insulated storage container and number of times the container lid is opened.


As a guide, Dry Ice typically evaporates at a rate of 5% to 15% product weight per day depending on the thermal properties of the Dry Ice storage container and the external temperature profile.
