Dry ice blasting is non abrasive
The reason our process is so popular, is the lack of mess and the fact we are non abrasive. We can clean around fine detailed areas, such as cappings, and blasting at lower pressures we can blast directly onto glass without any damage.
A major concern, when cleaning engine parts is that some blast media can remain and when the engine is reassembled, any residue can cause damage. Dry ice blasting is therefore, extremely effective, will remove paint, oil and grease, and introduces absolutely no secondary waste stream, as the solid CO2 pellets revert instantly back to gas.
We have been chosen to carry out many aircraft projects, including cleaning spitfires at Duxford. Our process has acquired preference due to its non abrasive nature meaning metalwork is not scratched or damaged like in other cleaning processes.
Furthermore, we are favoured on a vast range of vehicles. Cleaning paintwork, engines, and other parts without introducing any mess. We have completed a variety of projects from cabs in London buses to crank cases from Rolls Royces.
It is a quick and efficient process that reduces the time and gives an excellent quality finish.
Our main area of business regarding boats is paint and antifoul removal. Many boat owners have the difficulty of covering their boats with thick layers or paint, and after a few years of layering, the thickness of paint on your boat’s bottom will inevitable have to be stripped back to the bare hull.It’s advised that antifouling is carried out every 5 years.
Hard antifoul which hasn’t eroded will eventually build up as well leaving flaking, blisters and craters in the boat’s bottom. Dry ice blasting beats all traditional methods of diy scraping, chemical stripping or soda blasting by ultimately being quick and effective, obtaining an outstanding standard of restoration with little mess and reducing the number of man hours required to carry out the job.
