Not sure if this if of any real help to the answer, but I have what was a very badly scratched S-8mm sound feature print (all base scratches luckily) that I treated well with FilmGuard when it first became available. The film still looks great and is not ready for re-treatment. I suspect that at some time a FilmGuard treated print will need another treatment, but it does seem to last a long time. Great stuff.

Maurice, FilmGuard will naturally evaporate on it's own after some time, which is generally a few years or longer. (The length of time depends on how much you applied, how tightly the film is wound, the storage conditions of the film, etc.) A little bit goes a VERY LONG way though.
FilmGuard can be removed with perc, but there is really no reason to.
Paul Foster in the UK is again an authorized distributor for FilmGuard. He has just received (or will any day now) a shipment of both 32oz full size kits and the new 16oz half size kits.
He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org for orders.

Last time I bought Filmguard was in June and it was from Jack Roe (in the UK). They may have some botles left. It may be a good idea for Europeans based outside the UK to order Filmguard before the end of October for obvious reasons.

Dominique, i wouldn't panic, i think we'r in for a while yet, just keep enjoying the comedy show that is Parliament.It's embarrassing and a joke. My last bottle also came from JR, i must admit i wish i hadn't bought it, the cost was not much short of a 100 quid. It shouldn't cost half that in my opinion!!
