A preliminary comparison of the strength of two waxes for securing objects against earthquake damage



A preliminary comparison of the strength of two waxes for securing objects against earthquake damage



Tuhinga (17): 61-68



Two types of wax were tested for earthquake mitigation use for an exhibition of large, heavy, cast-glass vessels by New Zealand glass artist Ann Robinson, at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Te Papa). Informal testing was carried out using a mechanical tilt test. Consultation with an engineer enabled the tilt test to be related to earthquake conditions expected in the museum building. Results indicate that dental Utility Wax is stronger than Museum Wax (TM), but greater care is needed in its use.
