IceTech’s Evolution Line of dry ice blasting equipment uses dry ice pellets made from recycled carbon dioxide to clean molds. The dry ice pellets turn back into CO₂ gas once they come into contact with the mold surface. Both the Xtreme 40 and the Elite 20 systems allow users to clean molds in place, preventing potential damage caused by removal and reinstallation. Molders can clean critical parts of equipment while they are at operating temperature and without chemicals.

According to the company, dry ice blasting systems can eliminate blemishes and unwanted flash that occurs in the parting line of mold halves. They also enable equipment to be cleaned more regularly, keeping vents open to reduce clogging and helping to protect the metal components of the mold from damage caused by off-gassing.
