    Default Finally! An alternative to eraser...

    After a long search and many headaches I have finally found a product to replace eraser as insulation/water barrier. Dragon Skin is it's name...it is used by Hollywood special effects artist's. More info here... http://www.smooth-on.com/

    I have applied this to both motherboards and graphics cards with zero failures. I could have saved a ton of hardware if I had found this sooner. Confirmed cascade/LN2 friendly. This is a snap to apply and it is ready to use in less than 45 minutes. For those worried about rma's, this can be easily lifted up with no damage to components. TEC user's need worry no longer about condensation...crank it up! An added bonus is ramsinks on video cards are much less likely to fall off after this treatment. I will try to field as many questions as possible.

    It's look like a great product but the question is. Can it reusable as the eraser?

    That's the beauty of it...no need to ever remove it. I have it applied to every one of my motherboards now, front and back.

    $28 for the trial size...enough for about twenty motherboards I guesstimate. With the price of hardware involved, a drop in the bucket in my opinion. Eraser can't come close to what I can accomplish with this stuff. It flows and fills all voids leaving no air pockets for condensation to form. The following picture shows all the eraser I now use for cascade/LN2 sessions...all it is doing is sealing the perimeter of the chip and covering the metal retaining bracket. If it were not for constant swapping of cpu's, I would use Dragon Skin for this as well.

    I have some questions Rick:

    -is clear the only colour available?
    -how is it applied (liquid pour, spreading,etc)?
    -does it come off all in one piece, like peeling off latex rubber?
    -does it work with both hot and cold surfaces? ie--air cooling (hot) and LN2 (cold)
    -can it be reused if/when peeled off?
    -saw the website but specifically which product is this? (link, cost, where to order?)

    Thanks!

    -It comes clear but I believe it can be tinted.
    -After mixing you pour it. (I use a small artist brush to push it into small areas)
    -It pulls up in one piece unless you tear it.
    -It works at just about any temp we are likely to use, hot or cold. (It is silicone based)
    -If you must remove it you can use it as non-skid under your mouse.
    -Site is difficult to maneuver...try this: http://www.smooth-on.com/index.php?cPath=1115_1129

    Interesting. I might have to give this a go. Such a pain in the @$$ when I'm switching boards, CPU, and cooling methods all the time. Prepping for sub-zero on multiple boards every time....UGH.

    Which one did you order? The Dragon Skin 10 Fast or Dragon Skin 20?

    How much did you order?

    Dragon Skin Fast is what I ordered. It is fully cured in about 45 minutes. The trial size will go a long way...you are going to love this stuff.

    Jake, what do you want a gallon of fast ? it's $174.97 plus shipping That should last a very long time instead of ordering a trial size which you would use in in a month or so then have to reorder.

    He only needs the trial size...more than enough to do up to 20 mb's.

    Rick just got my stuff in two days ago, and is a great product, does everything you said it will do and more. Im using a water chiller to cool my CPU and this product is great for easy intallation and removal. Thanks for the Heads Up....I guess if after trying this product you still using eraser you just like to play with Play-Doh, like in kindergarden....LOL
