    Thanks. Very interesting procedure to make a surface hydrophylic.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    I understand well, getting sudden urges to sing loudly in the darkroom every now and then, too....



    I'm happy that electricity has only two possible polarities to try out .

    I get tendancies to scream in the darkroom.

    It might not be the polarity of the electricity, but rather the Higg's Bosons you are trapping that cause things to stick. Maybe gluons are doing something too.

    If the gluons were doing their job properly; the emulsion should have no tendency to lift.

    The setup I described above was indeed a bit ineffective with corona power of 1 W.

    Now I made a new one with two neon tube transformers (3 kV 50 mA!) in series. Now I see the corona discharge in dark and AHHH, the smell of ozone!! It takes 50 mA at 6 kV, that is 300 watts of power! I'll test subbing with this one soon - as soon as I add a rectifier and capacitors to make DC from this.

    Disclaimer: The previous was quite innocent one compared to this -- this is really a lethal weapon. Don't do this at home like me if you are not sure what you are doing! .

    I have a lot of experience gluing coroplast, which is a low-surface energy plastic that is really hard to glue, especially to itself. In order for most glues to work, the surface has to be prepared, or it will stick not at all. Scrubbing with scotchbrite pads has worked somewhat in the past, but a quick pass with a propane torch seems to make it work very well with CA glues, like magic. I wonder if you could prepare the surface with a quick pass of a flame or a low-energy plasma discharge.

    The things I remember about the equipment we used was the noise, the ozone and the blue glow it emitted. So, you are going in the right direction.

    Yes, now this unit gives a bright blue glow you can see even room lights on. And a huge SSSSSHHHHHHH and ozone that gives you a headache in a few seconds! It takes about 4 mA @ 18 kV = 72 W.

    I just coated a quick test with gelatin & color & glyoxal & surfactant. Let's see results tomorrow.

    Do you remember the film base giving you very uncomfortable static discharges / jolts after this treatment? This can be a problem since it probably will expose film. And I have to either use protective gloves or invent new swear words. If the static electricity goes off by just waiting, then it's fine if I handle freshly coated film carefully to avoid discharges.

    See my other post about corona discharge causing fog. There is a patent by Yost et al about this problem. I posted this elsewhere, but had forgotten it.

    The film was highly charged and would raise the hair on your head and arms.

    Have you tried laying/touching the freshly treated sheets onto a grounding plate, i.e. a metal plate that is connected to ground to discharge the static charge?
