Dry ice consists of frozen -78.5° Celsius cold carbon dioxide (CO2). Therefore dry ice or carbon dioxide is electrically non-conductive and odourless. Carbon dioxide is produced when breathing, as well as during the combustion of fermentation processes and even occurs in natural sources. The dry ice we use comes as a waste product from industry.
In contrast to sand (sand-blasting), the dry ice changes into its gaseous state directly and without liquefaction after the impact of the part to be cleaned, thus leaving no blasting agent residues.
