    Hi,

    Does anyone know of a source for acetate film base suitable for photographic use?

    I am looking for something that could be coated and used in place of regular 120 film.

    Thanks from,

    Emulsion.

    The only large scale production relict of the Agfa/AgfaPhoto plant in Leverkusen is the film base department. They still offer tri-acetate film bases. This department is now called `OpCo GmbH´. (PET bases are still produced at Agfa in Mortsel.)

    You could also inquire at `Filmotec´ in Wolfen. Beside from manufacturing PET-based camera and print films, they offer leader-films based on acetate and PET.
