What is dry ice?

Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide and it is freezing cold. Used primarily to keep things cool, dry ice as a cooling agent is more than capable of staying cold for hours on end, provided it is not left exposed to the elements.

When dry ice is in contact with the air, it can begin to melt. Although this process is slow, it won’t make a mess. Unlike ice made from a liquid such as water, dry ice is made from carbon, which means when it begins to break down, it turns into a gas which then simply disappears.

Dry ice is not only used as a cooling agent. It is also used for cleaning. As a cleaning agent, dry ice is blasted out of a machine at high speeds and the result is a super clean surface without the worry of having to clean up a mess.
