The bottles with Filmguard arrived

#1 by Eivind Mork , Mon Jul 25, 2016 9:29 pm

I got my three bottles of Filmguard today. I will test it as soon as I get to my cabin again in a couple of weeks.

I remember Hugh used WD40, and I must admit that the smell of Filmguard is very similar. I wonder what it is made of.

I look forward to test it, and I will try to make some before and after shots. I have a bad Tom & Jerry in mind, but will also test some with just a few lines.

Give it a go Eivind and let's see what you make of it.

I once bought a film from someone on the other forum saturated in some kind of film treatment. The film looked 'wet'. The image jumped up and down constantly in my projector. I took a dry film cloth and wiped the film down in the rewind mode. But the smell reminded me of gasoline. I think the film might have been saturated in an attempt to mask shrinkage or perhaps damage. It was VERY faded for sure.

I received a 16 mm print at one point that had been soaked in (possibly) FIlmguard, but maybe another brand of cleaner. The smell was so strong on this print that it made me sick and I wound up selling it.

Remember to apply very little of this stuff. A barely damp lint free cloth should do it.
For goodness sake do not soak the print. Its a wipe over it needs not a shower or bath.
Also open the windows and doors of the room when applying it.

I have bought cloths from Urbanski. Maybe I'll take my rewinders outdoors and apply it there :-)

I have found another use for this stuff.
I found some in an unmarked bottle today.
I remembered it was some Filmguard I got from the Cinema I worked in.
Took it out into the garden and found out its a great Earwig killer.

It'll certainly stop the little buggers climbing any where that's for sure!
Filmguard is just SOoooo slippery.😂😂

I just used some the other night, on a film that had lots of green lines. Applied filmguard while rewinding, then re-ran the first reel - was pretty amazing. Of course, didn't think to take before and after pictures!

I have a smokey and the bandit print with pretty bad lines, so when I get a chance I'll re-do the experiment with pictures.

Really? Eivind, will you test this on my Logan's Run sometime? I thought it would help on the black lines, but not the green emulsion damage. Film Renew do not help on this

Of course no film cleaner can ever do anything at all to eliminate Green lines on the emulsion side of a print. Emulsion scratches are there for good unfortunately.

All the more reason to ensure our machines we use, never produce these kind of scratches!

Maybe you're right Andrew, in that it only got rid of the black lines, leaving the green lines? Like I said, it was a spur of the moment experiment. I'll take pictures next time.

Thanks!

Off course, Vidar. Remind me, and I will bring with me one of the bottles on the next film meeting so you can borrow it to the next meeting or the Nordic film convention. Or you can buy it if you like it. I think I might have bought a bit more than I needed according to Andrew's reaction when I said I bought three bottles :-) Test it on a few films and report back to the forum what your find is :-)
