Sorry that this reply has taken so long but I did finally manage to
find out some things about shelf life etc. I spoke to Carmine Hannar
at Pride Solvents. He is the sales rep for ISI Chemicals. According
to their chemists, film grade Tri-clor has a shelf life of one year from the
time it is put in the drum and inhibiters are added. Tri-clor needs to be
stored in sealed drums at normal temperatures somewhere it can
be protected from possible water contaminantion. So don't leave it
setting outside! I was not able to find out about what the possible
consequences are if using out of date fluid though.
I contacted Dow Chemicals but the person I spoke with had very
little information about Tri-clor as it has been removed from their
database since manufacturing has been discontinued. She didn't know
if there would be any damaging effects to film with aged fluid either.
I know that I've used fluid that has been older than a year and have
never had any problems ever with cleaning film with it. Of course at
the time I didn't know that it was a potential problem.
Maybe someone from Kodak would know?
