UP CLOSE: Malignant Plastics

Audience: Adult Only

Many historic objects were made using chemically unstable plastics like celluloid, PVC, and rubber. Less than ideal for long-term preservation in a museum!

How do we race against time to preserve objects made from these historical, deteriorating plastics? And how do we identify which types of plastics will degrade, and which are more chemically stable?

Join us as we look at the development of some early plastics, examine military objects that used these materials in ground-breaking ways, and learn how the museum extends the life of these aging objects for future generations.
