What is Dry Ice Blasting?

Dry ice blasting is a process where dry ice (solid CO2) pellets are accelerated in a pressurized air stream to clean or prepare a surface. Through sublimation, where CO2 instantly changes from a solid to a gas, the pellets create mini-explosions upon impact to effectively clean nearly any surface. Since it leaves behind no residue, dry ice blasting has become one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly methods to clean in an industrial or domestic environment.

Dry ice is non-conductive, chemically inert, non-poisonous and nonflammable. It has the ability to clean a wide variety of surfaces including weld cells, production equipment, food processing equipment, printing presses, walls, windows, monuments and more. Dry ice can even be used on sensitive surfaces, such as active electrical equipment and outdoor sculptures, without causing damage.
