DRY ICE BLASTING Application Sheet 505

Rubber Mould Cleaning

Use Clean Surface System 2000 to:505-1

  • Clean hot tooling on the press.
  • Clean without mould erosion or wear.
  • Safely clean near electric cables, pneumatice lines, and hyrdaulic hoses.
  • Reduce machine down time

Dry Ice Blasting allows contaminants such as mould release agents and product residue to be removed from tooling that is installed in the moulding machine and at operating temperature. The process literally blasts particles of dry ice – solid CO2 – into the contaminant coating where it immediately sublimes into a much larger volume of CO2 gas. This causes the coating to break up and free itself from the die as small particles, which are then cleared away by the blast stream.

Because the dry ice particles sublime completely during the process, there is no secondary waste to dispose of and no possibility of entrapment of solid media residues in complex tool cavities.


505-2Dry Ice Blasting is non abrasive and will not damage tool surfaces or change tolerances and critical features, e.g. corner radii.

To get the best results from Dry Ice Blasting clean tools hot and in situ. This reduces cleaning time, lowers the cost of dry ice used and increases tool productivity.

The Clean Surface System 2000 costs less than £30 per hour to run for most applications and its use for a few minutes can save hours of production down time.
