Dry ice blasting is a revolutionary blasting method in which dry ice pellets replace traditional blasting materials like sand, water, glass and plastic.
In contrast to sand blasting, etc., the process leaves no secondary waste material. The only waste to be disposed of is the coating that has been dislodged, and this can normally be swept or vacuumed from the floor beneath the treated object.
The process is dry and non-conductive, and it is therefore suitable for use on electric motors and electrical circuitry.
It is a non-toxic, non-abrasive cleaning method where no waste materials are produced.
Dry Ice Pellets make impact on the layer provoking factures.
Dry Ice penetrates and generates a sudden local temperature decrease on both the dirt layer and the substrate. The different materials contract unequally and so the adherence between them diminishes. The layer cracks even more and loosen off the substrate.
After making impact, the dry ice turns into gas expanding its volume by a factor of 800. The expansion acts an as explosion that detaches the layer from the substrate. The substrate remains clean and completely intact.
