Cryogenic Deflashing for Medical Silicone Parts

Medical silicones can be molded into parts such as distal handles for surgical instruments and dental tools. There are many types of silicone rubber, but medical grade silicones need to meet biocompatibility requirements such as USP Class VI or ISO 10993. Then, after they are molded, medical silicone parts need to have a finish that’s […]

Dry Ice Deflashing vs. Cryogenic Deflashing

What’s the difference between dry ice deflashing vs. cryogenic deflashing? Both are used to remove mold flash from plastic or rubber parts. Dry ice deflashing uses compressed air to propel a stream of solid carbon dioxide (dry ice) particles that blast away surface defects. Cryogenic deflashing uses gaseous nitrogen to freeze parts so that mold […]

Cryogenic Deflashing for Plastic Parts

Cryogenic deflashing for plastic parts is an automated batch process that removes mold flash, excess material that affects surface quality and can cause problems with sealing, sealing, and assembly. During  cryogenic deflashing, molded parts are put in a perforated drum, subjected to cryogenic temperatures, and blasted with plastic media. The cryogen, a gaseous nitrogen, embrittles […]

Cryogenic Deflashing for Rubber Parts

Cryogenic deflashing removes flash, a type of surface defect, from molded rubber and molded plastic parts. This computer-controlled batch process provides faster cycle times, reduced labor costs, and greater part-to-part consistency than hand trimming.
