Print struck from Nitrate? -Reply



Dave,

I spoke to Bill Thorton at CineFilm in Atlanta concerning your question on
Nitrate film.

According to Bill it is very possible that the Nitrate could be printed
through and appear on the safety film.

His advises the following test:

Take about 2 - 3 frames off the head and take a match to it then remove
it.
If it stays buring its Nitrate, if it goes out its Safety.   Also the odor should
be acidic or vinegar smelling if it is Nitrate.  If you have any questions Bill
said to give him a call at 1-800-633-1448 and he would be happy to
supply any additional information you might need.
