What Is Dry Ice Blasting?

The process looks a lot like the pressure washer you’d use in a self-service car wash. But with dry ice blasting, solid carbon dioxide (CO2) is the cleansing medium, not water.


How it works


  1. Using compressed air, dry ice in a pellet or shaved form is accelerated through a hose and nozzle at a high velocity.
  2. The cold temperature of the dry ice creates a thermal shock that helps break the bond between the substrate and the contaminant.
  3. When the dry ice hits the surface, it instantaneously changes from a solid to a gas, and the volume of the dry ice expands 800 times and causes micro gas explosions that pull the contaminant off of the substrate from the inside out.
  4. The outcome is a clean surface. The process effectively removes residues, contaminants, dirt, oil, paint, grime and more without damage to the surface and without water.”
