Dry Ice Deflashing

Dry Ice Deflashing by Nitrofreeze

Dry Ice DeflashingDry Ice Deflashing uses a manually operated, precision dry ice cleaning system to remove difficult flash on a part. This process is ideal for parts with complex geometries and/or parts that require a media-less clean.  Because dry ice sublimates to gaseous CO2 upon impact with the surface,  Dry Ice Deflashing is effectively a media-free process. Larger parts (having a dimension > 5 inches) may also be good candidates for this process. Accelerated micro-particles of shaved dry ice serve to freeze and blast away residual flash.

Nitrofreeze has become the industry leader in cryogenic applications with much credit owed to its deflashing product lines. Professional, ISO certified service and fast turnaround times have made Nitrofreeze the go-to source for all plastic deflashing needs.

What materials can we deflash?

Deflashed plastic

Cryogenic Deflashing has proven successful in removing flash from most plastics and rubbers, with a demonstrated preference to thermoplastic polymers. Nitrofreeze has successfully deflashed the following materials and more with this process:

Silicones, Nylons, PEEKs, Polycarbonates, Polyurethanes, ABS, Acetals, Delrin, PPE (Polyphenylene Ether), Turcite, Ryton (PPS), EPDM, and many more.
