What is Dry Ice Blasting?

Dry Ice blasting is also known as, CO2 blasting, or cleaning with Dry Ice. Dry Ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide at -79 degrees C.

The Dry Ice is accelerated in a pressurised air stream, and expelled through a hose and nozzle. When pointed at the surface, the dirt is cleaned off, without damaging the substrate.

It is similar to soda, and sand blasting but as it uses dry ice as the blasting medium, Dry ice blasting is non-abrasive.

Dry Ice is non toxic, non abrasive, non conductive and non flammable. Compared to other media blasting methods, cleaning with dry ice does not create secondary waste or chemical residues as dry ice converts back to a gaseous state, when it hits the surface that is being cleaned. Dislodged dirt can just be swept up, vacuumed or washed away. 

Cleaning with Dry Ice is an efficient cleaning method, & is quickly becoming the favoured method of cleaning in a large number of industries where the use of abrasives, water or chemicals is not possible or creates other challenges.

Dry ice is made of reclaimed carbon dioxide that is produced from other industrial processes, and is an approved media by the EPA, FDA and USDA. It also reduces or eliminates employee exposure to the use of chemical cleaning agents.

The environmental benefits include cleaning with a natural substance, replacing chemicals and minimising the need for special waste disposal.

Cleaning With A Natural Substance

Dry Ice Blasting uses Dry Ice Pellets made from the same substance used to carbonate beverages. This method does not generate any secondary waste such as sand, soda, water, or grit cleaning does.

Dry Ice Blasting also replaces chemical and solvent based cleaning.

CO2 Blasting is the environmental cleaning method of choice

Safe On


This versatile process cleans heavy build-up without damage to sensitive areas like electrical components, switches, wiring, photo electric sensors, and more.

Dry Ice Blasting is completely dry, non-abrasive, non-toxic and non-corrosive.

It quickly removes most contaminants without damage to switches, panels, lines, tubes, wiring or belts and HVAC equipment.

A Thorough, Deeper Clean

Due to the very high pressure and high volume of air used for project the dry ice pellets, this process gets into the "nooks & crannies" to give a very effective and deep clean.

You'll be amazed at the result that can be achieved.

Excellent for Graffiti removal.
