NEGATIVE RECOVERY

A safe method for recovering acetate negatives
After extensive study we now have developed a safe method for recovering deteriorated acetate negatives without shrinkage or stretch.
The pelicule is lifted from its original acetate base to be remounted upon a new sheet of polyester.
For a demonstration of the emulsion transfer of a cellulose acetate negative by Michiel Kort see a video made by Hans Drieman:
YouTube- short version 9:59min
Vimeo- full version 11:33min

An industrial approach
The procedure has been designed to handle a maximum amount of negatives and a minimal amount of chemicals. This is an industrial approach of the vinegar syndrome that really works.

Large amounts of negatives at the time

We can handle large amounts of negatives at the same time. This will reduce the price per negative considerably.
