Back in the days of di-acetate and humidor cans, there was a mixture; you would put a few drops on a blotter and put the blotter in the can to keep the film pliable. I learned about the stuff from a lady who ran a rental library for years and always used it with excellent results; and I remember the ingredients but have forgotten the proportions. In fact, I mixed up a batch of it years ago but have lost my notes. ($#!+) [Confused] I spent a frustratingly fruitless night on the web looking for the formula.

The film moisturizer was made from eucalyptus oil, glycerine, camphor, and menthol. I did find references to this mixture in several old books and articles on home movie making, but none of them listed the proportions of the ingredients.

I suspect this is the "miracle film plasticizer" that Aussie bloke is selling on line for $50 an ounce...

Just found details from BJ Almanac 1960 for a Film Preservative.

I have opened a new thread.
