Paint Preparation with Dry Ice Blasting

Picture this: You’re ready to move forward with a fresh coat of paint on your surface, but realize the old, flaking coat needs to be stripped off before new paint can go on. That’s where we come in. Our surface prepping pros quickly, easily, and effectively prepare your surface for new paint by utilizing Dry Ice Blasting.

Most professional painters don't find 100% removal of old paint to be necessary before applying a new coat; all that is needed is a good clean surface for a new coating of paint to bond to, so as long as all of the loose and flaking paint is removed, along with dirt and grease, you’re good to go. Dry Ice Blasting is the ideal method to achieve a clean, paintable surface, plus you won’t create any secondary waste. We can accomplish this on a number of surfaces and items, including ceilings, walls, floors, and most types of industrial machinery.

On occasion there are jobs in which the desired outcome is as close to 100% paint removal as possible. For those situations we have a new to the market Cold Jet blast machine that allows us to combine dry ice and an abrasive media to accomplish this goal. This method still creates a significantly smaller amount of secondary waste than traditional media blasting alone. By adding the abrasive in combination with dry ice, we are better suited to remove multiple coats of paint.
