What the hell is this? I open my email and staring out at me as if hinting at my domestic shortcomings – when was the last time I emptied the litter box? – is this bucket of sand hanging from a ladder.
Fortunately the accompanying note from one of our Techs tells me that it’s R & E’s ongoing test of Dow Corning’s 995 silicone. Supposedly the stuff is rated to hold 1 lb per square inch but is now holding 50 lbs successfully (metal to glass).
…which test was necessitated when they started to work on the hanging system for Moje’s recently constructed, 200-lb panels.
Whew! Thank goodness. It’s comforting to know that someone is doing serious work in this joint.
I’m off to SOFA and the next Party.
