Dry Ice is a solid form of carbon dioxide (CO2), frozen to – 109°F/78°C. It is referred to as dry because as it changes from solid to gas (sublimation), it never goes through a wet stage. Carbon dioxide is what we exhale during breathing therefore it is a natural part of our atmosphere. It is also the gas used in carbonated water and sodas. It is a fast and simple way to freeze or transport frozen foods, medical and pharmaceutical products, or other materials that must be kept cold or frozen. Dry ice is non-toxic and is easy and safe to use when following safety guidelines. 


Dry Ice is sold in different shapes, sizes and weights, most commonly in Rice, Pellets and Block. Dry Ice is sold by the pound with a minimum of a 10 pound purchase required.

Rice: Approximately 1/4" in size and resemble a the look of rice. Commonly used for transportation of frozen food, medical specimens, and pharmaceuticals. Rice can alternatively be used for dry ice blasting as well.

Pellets: Approximately 1/2" - 3/4" in size and are larger than rice. Like Rice, pellets are commonly used in the transportation of frozen food, medical specimens, and pharmaceuticals

Block: Vary in size and weight and are also used in shipping, but often have a longer life due to the higher compression rates. Block are often heaver to transport and do not fit easily into containers.

We do not stock Block, it needs to be preordered one week in advance.
