What is Dry Ice Blasting? (Read Time 2 Minutes) - Blog - Dry Ice Works - FDA1We’re glad you asked! The process behind dry ice blasting is just as cool as the name eludes to. 

Here’s the quick and to-the-point science behind it: Dry ice, the solid form of carbon dioxide or CO2, is accelerated in a pressurized air stream and directed at a surface in order to clean or prepare it.

Instead of using hard, abrasive media, such as sand, to grind on a surface (and possibly damage it), dry ice blasting uses soft dry ice pellets that are accelerated at supersonic speeds to create mini-explosions on the surface to lift the undesirable substance off of the underlying surface. The pellets immediately evaporate back into carbon dioxide gas upon impact, leaving no secondary waste to clean up.
