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 – How It Works

Cryogenic Deflashing offers a modern approach to remove flash from your parts created during the molding process. The cryogenic deflashing process removes flash from parts via tumbling and blasting of fine, polycarbonate media in a cold atmosphere. By subjecting the parts to cold temperatures, the flash becomes brittle and is easily removed when the media […]

Plastic Flash Removal

Nitrofreeze provides plastic flash removal services for molded plastic parts. Any molder knows that as mold tools begin to age, flash will begin to form. Once flash begins to develop it will only continue to get worse with each time the tooling is used. Molders and end users typically have three choices to solve their […]
