Dry Ice and Sublimation

Dry Ice is solid Carbon Dioxide. Carbon dioxide is a colourless and odourless gas naturally found in the earth's atmosphere.

Dry Ice is extremely cold with a temperature of -109.3°F or -78.5°C.

Dry Ice changes directly from a solid to a gas bypassing the liquid phase. This process is known as “sublimation”.


Dry Ice will sublimate at a rate of ten to 30 percent every 24 hours in a typical ice chest so remember to pick up Dry Ice as close to the time needed as possible. Bring an ice chest or purchase one of our insulated EPS Foam containers to hold the Dry Ice and slow the sublimation rate. Keep the container closed as much as possible until you use the Ice. Dry Ice will not keep in a freezer or refrigerator – the movement of air will increase the sublimation rate.

Dry Ice Formats

Depending on your requirements, our Dry Ice is available in a number of formats including Dry Ice blocks, custom cut Dry Ice slabs and various sizes of Dry Ice pellets. Read more about Dry Ice.
