Abstract
Research into the possibility of using ice particles as a blast medium was first initiated at Defence Research Establishment Pacific (DREP) in an effort to develop a more environmentally acceptable paint removal method. A paint removal process was also required that could be used in areas where normal grit blasting could not be used due to the possibility of the residual blasting grit contaminating machinery and other equipment. Commercial ice blasting system was developed by RETECH, which is now being used to remove paint form substrates that cnanot be easily blasted by conventional techniques and also to clean soiled or contaminated surfaces. The use of ice blasting to removal paint from a variety of substrates is presented as well as examples of surface cleaning and surface decontamination.
