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 […]
Cyrogenic deflashing removes mold flash from plastic and rubber parts for improved appearance and performance. There are three different versions of this surface finishing process. The first, known simply as cyrogenic deflashing, freezes parts and blasts them with plastic media. The second, cyrogenic tumble deflashing, combines the advantages of cryogenic deflashing with dry ice deflashing, […]
Dry ice deflashing and deburring use dry ice particles accelerated by compressed air to remove flash and burrs from plastic and metal parts.
Overview Dry Ice Deflashing & Deburring is a CO2 blast cleaning process used in the removal of residual flash and burr material. This process employs dry ice particles accelerated by compressed air to blast away mold flash and machine burrs. Dry ice sublimates (transitions from solid to gas) upon impact with the part surface. This […]
