About Dry Ice?
Dry ice is solid CO2. Dry ice removes almost twice as much heat per pound as water ice. It changes directly from a solid to a gas without becoming a liquid. This makes dry ice especially useful in food preparation, packaging and transportation of perishables. In the event of power failures dry ice is useful in saving your perishables. AAA Ice Inc. is BG&E preferred dry ice distributor during power outages! Please call for more details.

Handling Dry Ice
Wear gloves when handling dry ice. Do not touch it with your bare hands it is -110 degrees below 0 and will cause severe frostbite and tissue damage. Plan to pitch up your dry ice as close as possible to when you need it. Dry Ice has a shelf life of 24-36 hours before complete evaporation. We sell our dry ice in insulated bags that hold 10 pounds, which is the minimum for purchase. For safer handling we recommend you bring an ice chest to transport it.
