Transforming water into ice instantly sounds like something you’d only see in a superhero comic. It’s so absurd and unrealistic that it couldn’t possibly be a thing that we can do in real life, right?

Except…we can.

Using purified water, you can transform regular H2O into ice with just a flick of your fingers. Don’t believe us? You really need to see it to believe it.

 

This process is only possible with purified water. Non-filtered water is typically full of impurities which cause the crystallization process. Because purified water doesn’t have those particles, there’s nothing for the molecules to latch onto.

Purified water can be supercooled to -40°C before it freezes without help. Once it hits the open air or another piece of ice, it will start to freeze.

Get ready to feel like a superhero with this super-cooled water. Start freezing everything in sight! Well, maybe not…that could end badly.
