Rubber molds are used for many products in the manufacturing industry, including plastic parts and automotive parts. When cleaning rubber molds, it is important to select a cleaning process that does not damage or corrode the mold. Dry ice blasting has been proven time and time again to be an excellent non-toxic and non-abrasive cleaning process for rubber molds.
Is it possible that dry ice’s high freezing point will cause the rubber mold to break?
No, it would not. Because dry ice does not have the ability to melt or soften materials. So where the heat from steam and hot water can damage rubber molds, dry ice cleaning does not have any effect on them.
Some non-toxic cleaners can react with rubber, causing damage, but not dry ice.
Dry ice cleaning is a safe and effective way to clean rubber molds. Because dry ice will evaporate immediately after completing the removal of dust and dirt on the rubber mold. Therefore, the dry ice will not react with the rubber, but non-toxic cleaners can react with rubber, causing damage. Dry ice cleaning is quick, easy and cost-effective.
Dry Ice Cleaning is an economical alternative to traditional mold cleaning methods because it effectively cleans your molds while eliminating labor costs associated with chemical processes or other manual methods of removing contaminants from the surface of your molds. Dry Ice cleaning can even extend life of rubber molds by removing all contaminants that can degrade the quality and the lifespan of the molds over time.
How does dry ice cleaning work on the rubber molds?
Dry ice cleaning works by using dry ice pellets to remove any dirt, oil or grease buildup on your rubber molds. The dry ice pellets are frozen carbon dioxide, which sublimates (turns from a solid directly into a gas) at -78.5°C (-109.3°F). The sublimation process removes any impurities from the mold, and when the dry ice evaporates, it leaves behind nothing but pure CO2 gas that does not leave any residue on the mold.
Ice cleaning is an effective way to clean your rubber molds. It’s safer than most other methods because it doesn’t use toxic chemicals or high heat. The best part about this process is that it can be done while the equipment is still hot and in operation! You don’t need any special equipment – just some dry ice and a vacuum cleaner with attachments for dusting furniture. You’ll also want gloves so that you aren’t touching the mold directly with bare hands while working on it.
