What is Dry Ice?
Simply put, dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide gas. Dry ice is a non-toxic, completely dry substance that produces virtually no by-product. It is often used as reliable cooling agent due to its extremely low temperature of -109Â°Â F.
Unlike normal ice that melts into a puddle of water, dry ice sublimates. Sublimation is the process of a solid form going directly into a gaseous form, while skipping the liquid state entirely. What does this mean to you? Dry ice is mess free! Dry ice skips over its liquid form, turning into carbon dioxide gas instead. So there is no puddle to clean after use!
What makes dry ice fun is the gas produced during its sublimation process. Since the substance is so cold, adding warm water to the mix accelerates the sublimation process. Adding water helps produce a much thicker, gas which is often used for special effects, like fog machines.
