Highway Service use our Dry-Ice blast cleaning equipment to clean the asphalt equipment we work on. This process is secondary waste free… no dirty water run-off as with steam cleaning/jet washing. Completely removes asphalt & bitumen without any damage to the underlying surface & paintwork, it is totally non-abrasive.
This process works exceptionally well on asphalt pavers & bitumen sprayers.

Dry ice blasting is perfect for:
