"You're being put into carbon-freeze."
―Lando Calrissian, to Han Solo[src]

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.[1] Such materials could even include sentient beings.

During the process, gasses were encased by Carbonite.[2]
