Nitrofreeze® Proof of Concept Case Study – Deflashing Silicone Square Gasket


Nitrofreeze® Deflashing and Deburring process adds value while reducing costs to customers by eliminating the need for hand trimming. Highlighted below is an actual customer part that has successfully undergone the Nitrofreeze® process.

Material : Silicone
Description : Square Gasket
Area for Concern : Parting Line Flash
Results :  The Square Gasket was an excellent candidate for the Cryogenic Deflashing process. Upon arrival the flash was visible on both the OD and ID of the gasket and because of their visibility there was no issue during the tumble and blasting.  The cryogenic atmosphere allowed for the flash to become brittle and break apart from the gasket. See the results above for yourself.
