What is Dry Ice?You’ve probably heard of dry ice before and its use in food storage and processing, but you may not realize its usefulness for entertainment purposes. Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide that’s stored at a temperature more than 109 degrees below zero. One of the reasons vendors use dry ice is that it offers cooling at a temperature that’s lower than water-based ice, and there’s no need for cleanup after the dry ice has evaporated.
Not only does dry ice reduce the need for waterproof or water-resistant storage, but it also provides longer cooling.
