MicroParticle technology is used in the plastics industry to clean molds, deflash and deburr parts and for surface preparation prior to painting. The technology allows companies to clean molds at operating temperature and in place, and it does not generate any secondary waste or leave any residue behind. Dry ice is shaved into sugar-sized particles, which allows more media to strike the surface per second than traditional methods. According to the company, this results in an increased coverage area and a faster, more even clean. Dry-ice cleaning can reach flash in complex geometry molds to thoroughly clean without damaging the mold surface or changing dimensions.
