Demonstration of synthetic finish at DuPont Exhibition at the New York Museum of Science & Industry
The durability of synthetic resin finishes, even under the most unusual conditions, was shown at the former DuPont Exhibition in the New York Museum of Science and Industry, Rockefeller Center. On top of the hardwood disc, covered with a synthetic finish, was a cake of dry ice; the demonstrator then poured hot water over the disc.
