Dry Ice Blasting

The safe way to clean or remove surface deposits without any media debris, solvent action or damage to the surrounding environment.

What can be cleaned or removed with Dry Ice?

If the substrate is strong enough to resist the effect of the gas generation it will not be damaged or abraded and, because CO2 is chemically inert, there will be no chemical reactions to alter the substrate's surface finish. Also, as sublimation taes place on first impact, there is no secondary impact to cause undesirable effects to the surrounding area or localised equipment, all of which make the process safe and ideal for use in an open environment, and as an in-situ tool cleaner.
