Film Cleaning - What Do We Do Now?
As of January 1, 1996 the manufacture of the most widely used film
cleaning solvent, 1,1,1 trichloroethane, is banned by law. Alternate
aqueous, semi aqueous and man made solvents as well as prototypes of new
cleaning machines are being tested by film laboratories, post video houses,
film archives and film exchanges. Operators are making hard decisions on
what to do after the cleaning solvent of choice is no longer available. Can
they use existing expensive machinery? What are the health hazards? what are
the disposal and reclamation problems? Will the costs increase? What are the
alternatives to solvent cleaning? Find out the pros and cons from a panel of
highly respected experts in the field on January 17th. Each speaker will
cover different aspects of this suddenly controversial subject.
