Film Cans

Archival Film Cans for the safe, archival storage of 16mm and 35mm film on cores.

Storing films in rusting metal film cans may be one of the chief causes of their deterioration, archival plastic polypropylene is a much more suitable material.

These film cans of inert polypropylene won't rust or corrode like the original metal cans your film probably came in. Small vents in these containers allow the exchange of acidic gasses (a by-product of deterioration - 'Vinegar Syndrome') which would otherwise build up inside the can and speed the breakdown of the film.

These cans are flame retardant and contain less than 4% halogen which means that in the event of a fire there is virtually no release of chlorine or bromine gas.

For storage of films on cores only (not reels) .

Casing answering to the standards drawn by ANSI, SIN and SMPTE.

See full dimensions in 'Specification' tab below.
