The process looks a lot like the pressure washer you'd use at a self-serve car wash. But with dry ice blasting, solid carbon dioxide (CO2) is the cleansing medium, not water.
1. Compressed air accelerates frozen CO2 in a pellet or delicate, shaved form through a hose and nozzle at a high velocity.
2. As the frozen co2 impacts the contaminant, it instantaneously changes from a solid to a gas in a process called sublimation.
3. During sublimation, dry ice expands nearly 800 times in a few milliseconds, causing micro-explosions. The resulting micro-cracking causes to contaminant to embrittle and shrink, breaking the bond between the surface and the contaminant.
4. This Process effectively removes residues, contaminants, dirt, oil, paint, grime and more without damage to the surface and without water.
Dry ice blasting requires no chemicals, and it leaves no secondary waste unlike sand or soda blasting. It's a faster, safer, and more thorough cleaning alternative that's environmentally responsible and approved by the EPA,FDA and USDA
