A sealed box containing a chunk of ice is made of 2cm thick wood, a good thermal insulator. The air outside the box is warm. It takes the ice one hour to melt. If I had put 2cm of aluminum (a good thermal conductor) around the outside of the box, in contact with the wood, the ice would have melted:
