These particles expand on contact and sublimate into vapor CO2, leaving behind a clean, dry, undamaged surface.

It’s Safe

Dry ice blast cleaning protects surface integrity and avoids grit entrapment, making it an effective alternative to abrasive grit blasting. There’s also no residue or secondary waste to clean, so you can use it with food processing equipment.

Eliminating toxic chemicals and harmful emissions makes dry ice blast cleaning environmentally safe, and it reduces employee health risks. It’s also:
