Millennium Cryogenic Technologies Provides Cryogenic Deflashing in Nisku

Flash, or flashing as it is sometimes called, is residue left on an object that has been molded or cast.  It’s a common occurrence for any material that is poured and hardened. Flash is very common in the rubber industry and there is a safe, effective cryogenic method to remove it. Millennium Cryogenic Technologies provides cryogenic rubber deflashing in Nisku using a combination of liquid nitrogen, high speed rotation, and shot blasts to achieve smooth, precise results.

How does it work?

The cryogenic process makes the flash brittle.  Once brittle, it can be cleanly broken away from the main rubber tool or part.  The rotation and shot blasts safely removes the brittle flash.  The method varies depending on the type of flash and rubber part.  In some instances, tumbling is sufficient to remove the flash and blasts or not needed.  Here at Millennium Cryogenic Technologies, we use our expert knowledge of rubber deflashing to create the optimal solution for your deflashing in Nisku needs.

Does this method work on other materials?

Cryogenic deflashing is not just for the rubber industry.  Many other industries take advantage of this affordable method as well.  For example, plastic goggles, gaskets, washers and die casts are just a few of the many materials that are typically deflashed.
