Dry ice blasting helps plastic manufacturers reduce scrap and downtime, improve product quality and prolong the life of their equipment
This paper will detail the advantages of dry ice cleaning as a replacement for solvent and/or mechanical cleaning for the removal of contaminants
from tooling, clean parts prior to painting, as well as its use to deburr and deflash plastic parts. The reader will achieve a benchmark understanding of the role and relevance of dry ice in mold cleaning, part deburring & deflashing, surface preparation and its impact on product quality, production cost, production efficiencies, worker safety and health and environmental responsibility. Research from several industry case studies will be discussed.
