Welcome To Shur Clean USA

Dry ice blast cleaning originated at Lockheed in the 70’s when a coatings engineer, Calvin Fong, was researching ways to strip paint off aircrafts.  The technology did not become commercially available until Alpheus bought the license and patents from Lockheed and introduced it to the marketplace in 1987.



Dry Ice Blasting uses dry ice pellets created through a process beginning with liquid carbon dioxide (CO2).  The dry ice is obtained as a by product of other industrial processes made from reclaimed CO2.  It does not produce CO2 or add CO2 to the atmosphere and therefore does not contribute to the greenhouse effect.  Upon impact the dry ice creates micro-thermal shock  which breaks the bond between the coating of grime and the substrate.  The high pressure air stream removes the dirt from the surface, while the dry ice pellets vaporize leaving only the removed debris to be cleaned, creating absolutely no secondary waste.
