Hi a friend from the states has asked me to help him locate a certain sort of film cleaner he can`t seem to buy any more so any help anywhere, US, UK, EU etc greatly appreciated.
It was kodak film cleaner, can you still get it, I thought somewhere in germany still sold it ??? or 1.1.1 trichloroethane.

Many thanks in advance.
Best Mark.

Any body especially in the States with some still on the shelves to sell would be great too.

Hi Mark!,both are discontinued,i recomend you EDWALL FILM CLEANER for a general cleaning or Filmguard if the print have scratchs or need lubricate.

As Steven Spielberg says....
Nothing beats old school projection. Digital is just an imitation.

I think one of the reasons it was discontinued was because of the use of Trichloroethane. I think this is a banned substance which can be absorbed through the skin and cause all sorts of nasty going's on.

Use FilmGuard or FilmRenew.


GS1200 Xenon with Elmo 1.0...great combo along with a 16-CL Xenon for that super bright white light.
