What is Dry Ice Blasting?

Dry Ice Blasting is a newer method of car cleaning that uses an effective particle blasting process that removes any stubborn dirt layers, debris, and contaminants from the car’s body and other surfaces. It is particularly effective for delicate surfaces and difficult-to-reach areas, ranging from cleaning the upholstery to tight areas in the engine compartment, underbody crevices, and restoration of worn-out classic cars.

Benefits of Dry Ice Blasting

There are many reasons why people choose to have their cars detailed by dry ice blasting. Here are some of the benefits.

  • Eliminates secondary waste
  • Faster than alternative methods, means less downtime
  • Can be used safely on electrical components
  • Can be cleaned in-place, no disassembly & reassembly needed
  • Environmentally-responsible
  • Can penetrate small, complex spaces with superior clean

Non-abrasive and Harmless

Dry ice cleaning ​​is a completely non-abrasive process that doesn’t use any solid rubbing particles, unlike steam cleaning and sandblasting which use micro-particles at high speeds for cleaning. In this process, compressed air is used to launch dry ice particles from a nozzle which targets the surface contaminants like dirt, old marks, rust, and flaky paint.
This way, it doesn’t harm the paint, metal, or any other delicate surfaces and only gets rid of stubborn coatings and layers from the car surfaces. As it cleans, the dry ice transforms into gas directly, leaving no marks or waste material behind.

Precise and Meticulous

This process offers a level of control and versatility to the operator that no other method can. The magnitude and aggression of the cleaning blast can be fine-tuned and adjusted according to the requirement, which helps clean any part of the vehicle effectively. With the material loaded in the hopper and directed via a nozzle, the operator can clean any surface with a sharp eye and select to leave another, if not required. This allows the cleaner to have full control over the process and manage as he deems better.

As the dry ice converts directly into a gas without becoming a liquid first, this method eliminates the need for wastewater collection and additional cleanup of any residues. It is an environmentally safe, and effective method of cleaning. Through this process, we can clean any surface or completely restore a vehicle without leaving any harmful chemicals or spray agent residues.
