Dry Ice Blasting Applications:

Surface Preparation Dry Ice Blasting Equipment

Prepare surfaces with a dry process that will not damage surface dimensions

Dry ice blasting eliminates the need for aqueous or chemical solutions for surface preparation. The process removes contaminants from delicate plastic surfaces and is also used to remove heavy contaminant buildup on metal and steel surfaces for immediate repair or non-destructive testing.

Dry ice blasting will not leave residue on surfaces or cause grit entrapment, which results in higher quality parts and more accurate measurements during testing.

See what other Cold Jet customers are saying about our surface preparation cleaning equipment.

Our experience with dry ice blasting is that it does a better job of preparing the base, which then allows the paint crew to more effectively apply a primer and a top coat that is more likely to endure longer than simply spot grinding or painting over oxidized surfaces. By preparing with dry ice blasting, we can save our customers a significant amount of money in painting as the paint will last longer, and we can perform the project with less people, less time and less risk.

We took dry ice and went in and blasted the aluminum to remove the corrosion to lower the conductivity levels so the aluminum is easier to be welded without having to grind it down to where the metal will meet better and weld better.
