  • What material is this?

    Does anyone know what kind of material this is? I'm talking about the material in the heel/sole of this shoe. I was thinking of creating an enclosure for my PC components if I can find a block of whatever this is.

    Platform shoe
    Have:Lilliput 7" touchscreen, 60 gig HD, Bluetooth, Jensen MP3 deck, 400 watt inverter, Holux 210 GPS receiver, Iguidance

    Want: Slot load DVD drive, 250 Gig HD, OBD II, Wireless PCI card, etc etc

    high density neoprene maybe?
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

      hmmm maybe..I'll do a search on that. Would you think it is non-conductive?

          Ok you totally misunderstood that I hope.
          I am looking only for the material in that shoe. I want a block of it to carve out a case for my drives and such

            yes. in all reality, not that many materials are conductive, especially any kind of plastic or rubber...

              I kid, I kid!

              My guess is, whatever material that platform is made out of is a little too insulating (thermally). The last time I found myself in payless looking for platforms, most of them seemed to be rubber.

                thats also the concern I had. If it would hold in too much heat. I was thinking of creating a tray or something to hold my drives and route my wiring, then have my MB hidden underneath with only the fan and heatsink visible.

                    Unless Sir Lancerlot is gay, but I don't think that is HIS shoe.





                    I also think it is high density neoprene.

                      Sir Lancerlot is in no way gay or in the same time-zone as gay LOL. Just a pic of a shoe I found on a site for example puposes only. Now...where the heck would I find a block of High density Neoprene? I don't think Walmart carries something like that

                        I think it might be
                        EPDM: (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)

                          I don't know about a big block to carve from, but you can get yourself a big bunch of mousepads, and peel the cloth top off (comes off pretty easily), and you've got yourself a nice piece of neoprene. I don't believe it's conductive but it's very thermally insulating. The mousepad-for-neoprene trick is useful for extreme cpu cooling with peltiers. The mousepads can handle up to a 100F delta T between the two sides of the material.

                            WTF would you want to carve a case out of a hunk for plastic or rubber. GO BUY A CASE , will probably be cheaper, look lots better and will function correctly
