How Long Does Dry Ice Last?
Dry ice has a relatively short shelf-life; with small quantities like 3.5kg you lose about 33% of the dry ice per 24 hours due to sublimation (dry ice slowly turning from a solid to a gas) so we recommend using your dry ice on either the day of delivery or the day after. With larger 8kg-10kg quantities you lose approx 25% per 24 hours.
How Do I Store Dry Ice?
Don’t put dry ice into a freezer, keep it in the storage box it’s delivered in with the lid secured, and place that box in a well-ventilated area. Never store dry ice in airtight containers; dry ice slowly turns from a solid to a gas which could cause a build-up of pressure.
