- "You're being put into carbon-freeze."
- ―Lando Calrissian, to Han Solo
Carbon-freezing was the process by which liquid carbonite was flash-frozen into a solid state, encasing materials for transport in a strong metal alloy. Such materials could even include sentient beings. During the Galactic Civil War, Han Solo was frozen in carbonite on Cloud City. The freezing process resulted in hibernation sickness, causing temporary blindness.
Rowan Freemaker was once frozen in carbonite.
