Removing the need for aqueous or chemical cleaning solutions, dry ice blasting also allows you to safely clean equipment and molds along the assembly line without losing time for equipment to cool down or to disassemble. Used at operational temperatures to remove an array of contaminants without the use of abrasives, dry ice blasting allows you to clean many surfaces without profiling or altering the appearance and texture of the product. Because the system does not introduce water or chemicals, dry ice blasting can also be used indoors and allows you to prepare surfaces for immediate coating or paint application.
When used on engines and undercarriages for cleaning, or on the production line for molds for automotive panels, seats, tires, and gasket molds, dry ice blasting does not require time for cool-off of the operational machinery or removal of the mold. With this routine cleaning, you can remove a number of contaminants that can alter mold geometry or impede equipment performance.
Used for adhesive, coatings, and corrosion removal, tool cleaning and parts refinishing, surface preparation and remediation, dry ice blasting provides a versatile cleaning solution that will not damage sensitive or delicate surfaces or surrounding areas while being aggressive enough to meet industrial process cleanliness standards.
