so while im preparing to get my bench setup done and looking for different ideas i ran across this and felt i should share the info.

reading the info i saw that this product costs about $29.00 and should cover about 25 motherboards.....

Now for the application :

You mix equal amounts of part A with part B in a small container. I use a small plastic or paper cup while Splave has used a small plastic sandwich bag which he cuts off a small corner and squeezes like a pastry chef decorating a cake. I still lol when I envision him wearing one of those chef hats benching.

Before we go further I must warn of not getting any Dragon Skin in the cpu socket area as it does tend to flow and balance itself out. I always install a chip before applying, but one member of our team did report he managed to let some seep into the socket area. He moaned about it being a pita to clean out...he now tapes the perimeter of the chip before applying Dragon Skin.

After mixing I pour the mixture around the cpu area then use a small artist brush to push it into smaller areas of the board such as between caps, ect.
I have seen no need to treat vast areas of the mb so far...I only cover a few inches diameter around the cpu socket area. Once applied it will fully cure in about 45 minutes and is ready for use. I use it on the back of the mb as well.

As long as it is not disturbed this application will last indefinately. There really is no need to ever remove it. Even for non benchers...system builders using water loops will find this useful. How many times have you heard of system leaks and water accidents taking out components? Dragon Skin will stop this dead cold. I hope this answered your questions fully

Cool any alternative to eraser is good by me. Please give clean up updates when its time.

NoGuru 10-21-2010 08:04 PM

Oh I am going to try this!

wumpus 10-23-2010 08:20 PM

wow thats pretty sick.

I put vaseline all over my P5Q Premium and used rice as insulation, and it works great.
insulation experiments are always fun!

although eraser is much easier to clean, which I like
clean boards sell for a bit more

but great idea none the less!

Anyone else see "This is Part-A" as "This is Spart-A" on the yellow bottle when they first saw the picture? Maybe something is wrong with me...

Ubernoobie 10-23-2010 08:31 PM

i thought this was a alternative to the eraser your supposed to erase pencil marks with... Then I realized this is a tech forum

IS it a permanent install? The benefit of erraser is that you can remove it fairly easily and the motherboard still looks like new after it is removed (for rma or resale etc) - how hard is dragonskin to remove completely?

Of it is permanent install, then how is it of more benefit to cheap 2-part epoxy resin?

Noting that epoxy resin is cheaper, it dries clear and it can be applied just as easily.

have you ever used special effects makeup for halloween? i remember there use to be this Stretchy Silicone Rubber that came in a tube that you applied to your face and when it dried it came off like rubber in one piece. well this is what Hollywood uses, or people doing special effects in movies, makeup artists. you mix the 2 parts, apply it to the board.... leave it on for as long as you want and when you want to remove it, you just peel it up and it comes off in one giant piece... ya eraser is nice and still could be used, but this would work better....
ordering my kit monday....

Looking forward to a bit of a review on it.
Would be much faster to paint on than spreading eraser, & nice if it comes off easily.

Awesome!!

I'll split some with someone if they want, after we see how easy it is to remove. Especially concerned with how easy it pulls out from under capacitors and other items that are a little above PCB level.
