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.
