Dry Ice Cleaning has proven to reduce down time for plastics companies across Australia because it allows for “cleaning in place” while the mould is still hot. This environmentally friendly and non-toxic cleaning method removes the build-up of surface residue from product mixes, release agents and over-sprays without producing any secondary waste. Dry ice blasting is used in a variety of plastics applications like core boxes and plastic moulds because it does not damage or distort their shape. It is also an effective cleaning method for blow moulds, compression moulds, injection moulds, extrusion moulds, and others. Dry ice cleaning does not require solvents, and it leaves a smooth surface, preventing damage to machinery, moulds, or the finished work surface. Non-abrasive and quicker than traditional cleaning methods, cleaning allows for increased cycles between cleanings and maintenance schedules.
