F E AT U R E 10 Mold Maintenance & Repair FIGURE 3: Kinetic, thermal and sublimation properties of carbon dioxide associated with a micro-particle dry ice system. FIGURE 4: Micro-particle dry ice systems are also often used to deburr and deflash plastic parts. The burrs in the image on the left were removed using micro-particle dry ice (right). Cleaning Results Micro-particle dry ice yields an improved, sus- tainable, non-abrasive mold cleaning process. Its benefts include: More effective and effcient cleaning. The micro-particle size of dry ice allows for thor- ough in-place cleaning of molds, and its low coeffcient of friction enables penetration of tight mold geometries. Dry ice also sublimates and leaves no secondary waste or residue on the mold surface. Safer cleaning. Dry ice cleaning replaces the use of chemicals, which require proper dispos- al and have a negative environmental impact.
