How Does Dry Ice Blasting Work?

Portland Blasting’s dry ice blasting system utilizes grain-size pellets of CO2 fired in a compressed air stream. Hitting objects with dry ice causes surface metal to shrink due to the freezing temperatures, losing its grip on the original sub-surface.

Using a process called sublimation, the dry ice penetrates unwanted material, and contact is made with the underlying surface. This contact warms the dry ice converting it back into carbon dioxide gas with a much greater volume than its prior solid form. As it expands underneath the unwanted material, the material is removed from the surface.

Among the materials commonly removed through the use of dry ice blasting are:

  • Oil
  • Grease
  • Tar
  • Asphalt
  • Decals
  • Dirt
  • Ink Resins
  • Adhesives

The only clean-up required is the removal of the loose contaminants as the dry ice sublimates into the atmosphere.

This process is fast, simple, effective, and easy to clean up.

What To Know About Dry Ice Blasting

Indoor dry ice blasting requires a well-ventilated area due to the CO2 gases. For tight spaces, Portland Blasting professionals bring their own breathing apparatus.

The dry ice is handled exclusively by trained Portland Blasting technicians meaning no risk of dry ice burns to the client. Our industrial customers do not need to worry about purchasing, storing, or shipping the dry ice as our professionals come with special insulated containers, keeping the dry ice in its solid state as long as possible.

We make this effective blasting process easy for our clients.
