Dry Ice Blasting
Dry Ice Blasting Surface Preparation
Need a dust free environment? Having trouble finding the right blast media for your surface preparation needs? In addition to sandblasting, glass bead blasting, baking soda blasting, among many other types of media, Alpine Painting has over three decades of experience dry ice blasting.
The process of dry ice blasting is complicated and should only be handled by contractors with years of experience. How does dry ice blasting work? Essentially, soft CO2 pellets are launched at supersonice speeds to quickly and safely remove paint and other unwanted contaminents. Dry ice blasting does not rely on his physical properties the way standard sandblasting does. Instead, a process called thermo-shock beings when the dry ice pellets hit the surface. Quickly, the surface temperature decreases and the velocity of the pellets causes the old paint and particles to be removed.
Dry ice blasting is an environmentally friendly alternative to other types of blasting methods. Dry ice blasting contains no secondary contaminants such as solvents or grit since it evaporates on surface impact. Additionally, dry ice blasting is one of the safest blasting procedures when done by experienced contractors such as Alpine because the pellets are non-abrasive and non-flammable.
Although Ice Blasting is a slow process not suited for large blasting projects, it is the perfect fit for removing graffiti or cleaning production equipment, and is well suited for the removal of paint, oils, biofilms, and other contaminants.
