Dry Ice Blasting Services
Dry ice blasting is the modern alternative to sandblasting, chemical cleaning, water blasting, manual scrubbing and scraping. It is also the most effective and efficient method of cleaning currently available making it ideal for restoring automobiles to their original factory shine.
The process uses frigid temperature dry ice pellets (-78.5°C or -109.3°F) blasted at a high velocity through a nozzle using compressed air. The high impact and rapid transfer of heat into the pellet allow for the unwanted material to be removed easily and with little to no abrasion.
Almost instantaneously, the CO₂ pellet changes from a solid to a harmless gas. This area of high pressure focused between the surface and the thermally fractured coating particles results in a very efficient lifting force to carry the unwanted particles away from the surface. Leaving behind a clean, like new surface and only the unwanted material to sweep up.
Dry ice blasting produces no secondary waste making it environmentally safe and eco-friendly. It's a used and approved cleaning medium by the EPA, USDA & FDA. In addition to being safe and non-toxic, it reduces or eliminates exposure to (and corporate liability from) the use of dangerous chemical cleaning agents and solvents. Being made from reclaimed CO₂ means it does not produce CO₂ or add CO₂ to the atmosphere.
BEFORE & AFTERS
This 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 was given a deep clean and shine after the owner attempted hours of manual cleaning with little success. The effective yet non-abrasive dry ice cleaning method creates a clean slate ready for additional maintenance and modifications to ensure it continues to drive like a Porsche should.
