Dry Ice

Dry Ice is frozen carbon dioxide (CO2) and forms at -109.3 Fahrenheit. Dry Ice goes from solid back to gas through a process called “sublimation” in normal atmospheric conditions without going through a wet liquid stage

General Distributing Dry Ice is available in either pellet (storing and packaging) or rice (dry ice blasting) form
