Greeting.....

I am new in this hobby. Back many years I worked in a neighborhood movie theater as a usher, projectionist(when the full time projectionist was to drunk to do it) & bouncer. Went in to the Navy and became an IC electrician and for six years showed movies and repaired 16mm aboard 3 ships.I am now retired as a field service rep, and have just restarted my love affair with real film. Enough about me.
I read a number of questions & responses in this form about about film cleaner and lubricants but I noticed the subject of using TEFLON was not mentioned. Has anyone tried using this on film and what were the results?
Thank you
Tom

hi Tom, welcome to the forum! I never used "teflon", FilmGuard is the one of the most popular film cleaner/lubricants used by a lot of the members here, including me. If you use the search feature at the top of the page you can review some of the earlier threads concerning film cleaners. [Smile]

Filmguard which is available from Film-Tech.
FilmRenew which is available from Urbanski Film.

These are the most popular cleaners used by collectors.

Just to amend this (WITH FILM GEEK SPECIFICITY [Razz] )...Film guard and Film renew are the most popular slow drying cleaners....There are other fast drying cleaners that some of us use like Hexane and Urbanski films Solvon....AND all 4 OF these cleaning liquids can be used on an actual film cleaner like Roy Neil's Film-O-Clean
