Vaporate was a commercial film preservation system applied to movie film. The leader of a film was embossed with the Vaporate name to distinguish it and a certificate of authenticity was included in the film can.
The Vaporate process seemed to work as this film (1932) did not exhibit any symptoms of vinegar syndrome.

Vacumate (spelling ?) was also a commercially available process. I used to use a lab in Detroit that offered this service and I had some home movies treated. It made the film much more resistant to scratches and wear. I know this lab made prints for Blackhawk on a contract. This was in the early 1980's as I recall. It would have been great if they used the process as standard when making prints...
