  1. 1. PRECISION ICEBLAST CORPORATION “New Technology in Cleaning” CO2 Blasting Contractors ________________________________________________________________________ N3908 Highway 41 Wallace, Michigan 49893 Phone 906-864-2421 Fax 906-864-2425 Introduction Precision Iceblast Corporation provides services all across North America. We are the oldest and most experienced ice blasting contracting company in the country. Through years of hard work and determination we built up an impressive clientele of companies scattered all across the United States. Precision Iceblast Corporation has been contracted to perform work in most industries such as food, printing, paper, tape, automotive, marine, military, restoration, manufacturing, etc. Our system uses high velocity streams of dry ice to clean, strip, or prepare surfaces for painting. This technology has now become the safest, most environmentally safe, and “cleanest” method to clean a surface. The new technology of CO2 blasting is the modern alternative to chemical cleaning, sandblasting, water blasting, steam cleaning, manual scrubbing, scraping, and hand tooling, and is the most effective and efficient method of cleaning available today. CO2 blasting is typically much faster than these other methods. Our customers save a lot of money, due to reduced time frame, labor costs, and cost of material disposal. The CO2 cleaning process requires a liquid CO2 supply, a pelletizer, a blasting unit, a 750/250 compressor and a dryer system. Our entire unit is completely portable and fully self-contained. This allows us to access almost any area without using any of your utilities. Our people are certified in confined space and knowledgeable in lead abatement and working at elevations. We are also experts in containment, which allows us to blast near production areas. Our employees undergo extensive safety training and our company holds an impeccable safety record. Precision Iceblast has almost two decades of experience and we have never recorded a serious accident. Precision Iceblast Corporation is not only the leader in the ice blasting industry, but we have been pioneering the industry as well. For example, when our customers request a profile or have an SSPC requirement that mandates a profile, we simply add sponge media to the dry ice. This mixture is our own proprietary process that allows us to create a profile with the sponge and simultaneously provide a superior clean to the profiled surface with the dry ice. Over the years Precision Iceblast Corporation has cleaned and prepared surfaces for painting in almost every industry imaginable. We have reached out to different industries and have completed applications never intended for ice blasting. Our company works on ships, bridges, tanks, buildings, walls, ceilings, etc. We have performed work for the United States Coast Guard, United States Navy, and Department of Transportation – just to name a few.

PRECISION ICEBLAST CORPORATION “New Technology in Cleaning” CO2 Blasting Contractors ________________________________________________________________________ N3908 Highway 41 Wallace, Michigan 49893 Phone 906-864-2421 Fax 906-864-2425 Simply the Safest Cleaning with dry ice is simply the safest method for cleaning or preparing a surface for recoating. First, ice blasting is completely non-abrasive. This characteristic allows materials such as steel, concrete, plastic, glass, or rubber to be cleaned without causing any damage to the surface. Also, by simply adjusting the air pressure, CO2 cleaning allows the option of either cleaning a painted surface or stripping the paint completely off of the surface. Secondly, ice blasting is a dry process. Therefore, ice blasting can be used to clean electrical components and it is completely safe around bearings. Furthermore, CO2 blasting is FDA Food Grade Certified and upon contact will kill bacteria, mold, mildew, fungus, etc. Cleaning with CO2 also contributes to moisture reduction which aids in inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Ice blasting meets EPA, FDA, and USDA guidelines. Because our media is simply carbon dioxide (what we breathe out), we can blast near products and work while facilities are in operation without worrying about causing contamination. Environmentally Safe Dry ice may be white in color, but it certainly has strong “green” qualities. During a time in our nation’s history where there is a strong focus on preserving the environment, CO2 blasting can boast of being the most environmentally safe method for cleaning or preparing a surface for recoating. Once the dry ice hits a surface, it vaporizes, turns into a gas, and returns back to its natural state in the atmosphere. Therefore, there is no waste to clean up other than whatever material is blasted off. This is very environmentally significant because ice blasting eliminates harmful chemicals, truckloads of hazardous materials, and enormous amounts of media to dispose of. The savings in disposal costs can then be very significant. Surface Preparation Ice blasting does a superior job preparing surfaces for painting because it provides the “cleanest” surface available. When dry ice is blasted across a surface, the dry ice molecule penetrates deep into any pores, profiles, grooves, or crevices until it makes contact with the inner most surface. At this point it sublimes and expands 800 times its size thereby removing any possible contaminant not just on the surface, but deep within the surface. This deep clean is revolutionizing surface preparation because the cleaner the surface, the better a coating will bond, and therefore, the longer it will last. In addition, ice blasting removes all microorganisms and oils as well which can contribute to paint failure if they are not removed. Coatings can be applied immediately after the surface is

If the surface is already wet, ice blasting will dry out the wet surface. Collectively, these characteristics of ice blasting provide the cleanest possible surface for applying a coating, as well as the best surface for the paint to bond. These qualities, compared to other methods, produce the greatest longevity for the paint’s lifespan. Our system is the most aggressive system in the country. We use high-density pellets which is substantially more aggressive than shaved block ice. We also blast at 300 psi which ensures that all necessary materials are removed from the surface and further paint failure will not occur underneath the new coating. This very high-pressure is essential in providing adequate surface preparation. Our equipment is highly specialized and modified to achieve and sustain these high-pressures. Because so much of our work is surface preparation, we provide our customers a complete package by offering them our painting services as well. Precision Iceblast Corporation is very experienced in applying coatings. We have applied coatings on ships, walls, ceilings, tanks, structural steel, equipment, etc. However, some of our customers have in-house painters or long term relationships with painting contractors so our company will perform surface preparation regardless of whether we paint or not.
