What Is Dry Ice Blasting?

Dry Ice Blasting is a non-abrasive, non-flammable, non-concuctive cleaning agent similar to abrasive blasting such as sand blasting, plastic bead blasting, or sodablasting. Dry-ice blasting leaves no chemical residue as dry ice sublimates at room temperature.

Dry ice-blasting uses dry ice, the solid form of carbon dioxide, and accelerates it in a pressurized air stream. This stream is directed at a the dirty surface in order to clean it.
