An aqueous, high water absorption polymer used to simulate crushed and cracked ice. Its resemblance to real ice is striking. It is supplied in granular form to which water is added in varying amounts. The material produced is gelatinous to the touch, but appears crisp and cool. It is also completely non-toxic, odorless, and biodegradable. Dispose of through the sewer. Crystal Ice is non-irritating and its stability in its dry form is indefinite.
