Download MSDSDownload MSDS

Carbon dioxide is a compound containing carbon and oxygen. At atmospheric temperatures and pressures, carbon dioxide is in gaseous form. It is colorless, odorless, and about 1.5 Times heavier than air and a slightly acid gas. The gas is non-reactive, nontoxic and Nonflammable. Solid Carbon Dioxide (dry ice) is formed at a temperature of -78.5°C.

Carbon dioxide has so different usages regarding to its chemical form. It can be used as A solid (Dry Ice), liquid or gasified form. Carbon Dioxide in its solid form (dry ice) is used As a refrigerant when transporting dairy products, meat products, frozen foods and Other foods. It is also used as a coolant in industrial processes such as grinding, rubber Tumbling and cold treating materials. Carbon Dioxide as a gas and liquid has below Usages:

  • Carbonating soft drinks.
  • Chemical Processing.
  • Fire Extinguishers Systems.
  • Welding.
  • PH control in water treatment.

Hazards Identifications
High pressure liquid and gas can cause rapid suffocation and can increase respiration And heart rate. Solid and liquid may cause frostbite.

Handling and Storage
Direct contact with solid Carbon Dioxide (Dry Ice) should be avoided. Do not ingest solid Carbon Dioxide. Wear protective eye glasses or shields when cutting dry ice. Solid Carbon Dioxide (Dry Ice) should be stored in insulated containers with loose fitting Covers that allow the evolved gas to escape. Store in a well ventilated area to prevent Accumulation of Carbon Dioxide vapors above the exposure limits.
