Dry Ice Safety & Storage

You should always take proper safety precautions when handling, storing or transporting dry ice and always keep it out of reach of children. Dry ice should always be stored and used within areas with adequate ventilation. Dry ice sublimates into carbon dioxide gas, which can pose a suffocation hazard in confined areas.

• Use only with equipment and storage containers suitable for dry ice. Never store dry ice in a container with an airtight seal because it may burst. We carry a full line of Sonoco ThermoSafes

• Dry ice is extremely cold and can cause frostbite. Always wear proper protective clothing and avoid contact with exposed flesh. In case of prolonged contact with skin, seek medical treatment immediately.
• Dry ice is harmful if eaten or swallowed. If ingested, seek medical treatment immediately.
