The CryoBan grenade was a type of grenade used for many thousands of years; from at least 4,000 BBY to the time of the Battle of Yavin and likely after.

The CryoBan grenade was originally designed as a fire suppressant. When detonated, Cryoban grenades rapidly caused everything in a radius of four meters to freeze. Used as a weapon, they could trap a person or object, and the cold itself could be lethal to living beings and damage equipment such as droids and vehicles.

The freezing effect was caused by a supercooled liquid that froze on contact. There was also a chemical agent present that absorbed heat.

CryoBan grenades were used by Revan, the Jedi Exile, mercenaries, Mandalorians, and others during the Jedi Civil War.
