Isogenix Dry Ice Blast Cleaning systems eliminate the need to remove and reinstall molds during cleaning, decreasing downtime. The use of Isogenix in the cleaning and maintenance of molds have shown to decrease downtime by up to 75%.

The buildup of fouling residue and mold release agents cause blemishes and unwanted flash to the final part. It also makes it more difficult to hold tolerances on parts, which can lead to increased scrap. Dirty molds affect not only quality but productivity as well. Rubber parts will stick to the mold during removal, which increases cycle time, and in some cases, mold build-up can lead to over-packing, which in turn can cause internal strains to the tool.
