Traditional cleaning methods in the plastics industry can be time consuming, ineffective and costly. Dry ice blast cleaning is a quick, efficient and environmentally friendly alternative. Cold Jet dry ice blasting allows plastic molders to clean while molds are still hot and in the press, significantly reducing downtime due to cooling, disassembly, manual cleaning, reassembly and reheating. Dry ice blast cleaning is non-abrasive and non-conductive, and will not etch or profile most metals, Cold Jet says. Mold release agents buildup, plastic residue and out-gassing can quickly be removed, and intricate molds are easily cleaned with dry ice blasting. Visitors can stop by Cold Jet for live demonstrations or bring their own pieces to be sample cleaned.
