Vaporization events detected with the 4π array INDRA, where all species have atomic numbers lower than 3 are studied. Binary dissipative collisions are found to be the dominant mechanism responsible for the production of such events. Due to large fluctuations (energy damping and mass of partners), the excitation energy of the vaporizing partners covers a very broad range from 6 to 28 AMeV.
