Safelight recommendations

Unexposed film has some sensitivity to prolonged white light exposure. For best results, handle film under yellow or UV-modified fluorescent light. Protect exposed film as you would unexposed film.

Film cleaning

Water or water/alcohol cleaners are NOT recommended as they will attack the films matte surface.

Opaquing

Ferric oxide or other water-based opaque is recommended for minor blemishes.

Film handling

This is a single usage film, and is more susceptible to fingerprinting and scratching than conventional films. Care should be taken when handling.

Dot etching

This film cannot be wet or dry etched.

Shelf life & storage

Unexposed film shelf life is eighteen (18) months. The expiration date is printed on the product label. Ideal storage conditions are in the original packaging, kept flat in a cool, dry, dark place: 32°F - 70°F (0°C - 21°C) and 50% RH. Exposed film is best stored the same as unexposed film.
