When you activate the pack it looks like ice. Its actually aqueous sodium acetate crystallized. this is different. even though this stuff is sometimes called hot ice, its not really ice at all. I think people call it ice because when this substance sodium acetate, is dissolved in water, and then moved, it freezes, or becomes solid. When it becomes solid, it looks like ice. but its really not. Also, dry ice is really cold, and this is the stuff used in hand warmers - But why does this happen -- johnstownwildfire
