SAFE ON ANY SURFACE
Cleaning with dry ice is simply the safest environmental site cleaning method, including cleaning or preparing a surface for recoating. First, dry ice blasting is completely non-abrasive. This characteristic allows materials such as steel, concrete, plastic, glass, or rubber to be cleaned without causing any damage to the surface. Also, by simply adjusting the air pressure, CO2 cleaning is ideal for surface preparation, by allowing the option of either cleaning a painted surface or stripping the paint completely off of the surface. Secondly, ice blasting is a dry process.
Therefore, ice blasting can be used to clean electrical components and it is completely safe around bearings. Furthermore, CO2 blasting is FDA Food Grade Certified and upon contact will kill bacteria, mold, mildew, fungus, etc. Cleaning with CO2 also contributes to moisture reduction which aids in inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Ice blasting meets EPA, FDA, and USDA guidelines and would be ideal for environmental site cleaning situations. Because our media is simply carbon dioxide (what we breathe out), we can blast near products and work while facilities are in operation without worrying about causing contamination.
CO2 blasting is the most environmentally safe method for cleaning or preparing a surface for recoating. Once the dry ice hits a surface, it vaporizes, turns into a gas, and returns back to its natural state in the atmosphere. Therefore, there is no waste to clean up other than whatever material is blasted off. This is very significant, because ice blasting eliminates harmful chemicals, truckloads of hazardous materials, and enormous amounts of media to dispose of, making it a safe environmental site cleaning option. The savings in disposal costs can then be very significant.
