Physical Properties

Warning!: Extremely cold, -109°F (-78°C). Do not put in closed containers. Do not handle with bare hands. Handle with protective gloves only to prevent skin or flesh from sticking. May cause burns or frostbite. Do not enter confined areas where used or stored until adequately ventilated. Dry ice liberates heavy carbon dioxide vapor which may cause rapid suffocation. Can increase respiration and heart rate. May cause nervous system damage. May cause dizziness and drowsiness. Use in accordance with Material Safety and Data Sheet P-4575. In case of skin burns or frostbite obtain medical attention immediately.
