Abstract

An experimental study on paraffin wax was done to investigate its potential as modelling material and observing the effect of local environment thermal parameter. Testing and analysis done using cromatographer, differential calorimeter scanner, instron strength analyzer, durometer and laboratory experimental equipment have given us the opportunity to clarify certain elements in understanding the wax characteristics. Wax, through this experiment, have been proven viable as a modelling material. The surface finish is found to be better than Industrial Design (ID) clay and stable for the local environment as long as it is not exposed to direct heat source such as sunlight.
