Dry Ice Blasting Historical

Posted by wpadmin on May 13, 2017

Firstly, to our customers and staff I wish you a safe and relaxing summer.

2016 was a prosperous year for Impact Industrial Services and it looks like growth for 2017 is continuing at an even greater pace!

By building relationships with the biggest local masonry companies, we have been introduced into a ‘new sector’ of Dry Ice Blasting and have even greater possibilities in the Historical Restoration of stone and brick buildings.

The work we have done in this area has proved rewarding and fulfilling. Customer response and our excellent reputation have opened a broad range of opportunities for us and we have seen a surge in project bookings this summer.

Just some of the surfaces we can gently blast clean are:

  • Historic Tyndall Stone
  • Historic Sandstone
  • Limestone
  • Italian Stone (travertine, Carrara, Marble)
  • Delicate exterior cleaning of cornices, plinths, ashlar blocks and Quoins (to name just a few)
  • Mosaic and Victorian Tiles
  • Pre-Cast Stone
  • Granite
  • Brick
  • Concrete Parging

The major advantage our Dry Ice Blasting service has in this sector is that we lift the contaminant away rather than grind it away like other forms of blast cleaning. The process is gentler, and therefor leaves the substrate damage free.

Dry Ice Blasting also has many advantages over chemical cleaning. Chemicals used to clean stonework are harsh by the very nature of their requirements.  The results are often good, but there can be long term effects on porous stone. Chemical cleaning is also a very time-consuming process.

Dry Ice Blasting is the Environmentally Friendly choice for surface restoration. It’s definitely the safest option to clean your stonework.

I would like to thank our employees involved for their expertise and input when dealing with some delicate and very sensitive surface restoration projects we have encountered recently.
