Liquid Nitrogen and Dry Ice Insulation Guide

With everything insulated up, gently place the board where you will work and connect all the relevent cords. Carry the board carefully, it is easy to crack traces in the board if you carry it and have the board support the weight of the pot.

After a three hour bench session with temperatures ranging between -130 Celsius and -190 Celsius, I had a healthy layer of condensation on the mount.

Here you can see a small ring of condensation that forms where the insulation and the clay meet up. Otherwise the clay is dry except for the drops of water falling off the pot mount.

All is well underneath the board also. The paper towels are there just in case anything condenses behind the board along with a 1/4″ of insulation and then the mount.

That’s all it takes. You’ll notice the clay colors changed. I’ve been benching for the last week and compiled this from an assortment of images after many remounts. So long as you dry the clay off, you can continue to re-use it many times. Just be very careful to not roll anything metallic into it. For example, I had some metal shaving from dremeling some aluminum and I dropped a piece of clay on the floor, embedding metal shavings into the clay.
