How Does Dry Ice Work?

Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide at a temperature of -109.3 °F. Carbon dioxide doesn’t have a liquid state, which is why it turns into a thick white fog when it dissolves and doesn’t melt. Due to its extremely cold state, dry ice is ideal for transporting or preserving frozen foods and materials. It also makes dry ice very dangerous to handle without proper protection because it can result in burn-like injuries or frostbite in a matter of seconds.

Common Uses for Dry Ice Include:

  • Transporting or shipping refrigerated materials
  • Outdoor activities: fishing, camping, and boating
  • Visual effects for photography, film, and theater
  • Halloween special effects
