    Edwal No Scratch

    I'm skeptical by nature. Does it work ?

    Works pretty well on scratches that are not too deep.

    Yeah, I've used it for years. Messy, but it works for light scratches, just in the way that fluid mounting reduces dust and scratches for processes not discussed on APUG.

    I see. I had one 8x10 pyro neg ruined like that in a big lab. They blamed it on Pyro and the weird color.
    I don't go there anymore...
    I don't drum scan anymore.

    I've also used regular old Vaseline and that worked for me. My brother-in-law, a Kodak tech rep, informed me it was an alternative.

    Edwal No-Scratch is oily, but I think it would be easier to remove with film cleaner than Vaseline. It's also not yellow, like Vaseline.

    Thanks, I will give a try, I have one neg with a thin scratch line all the way on the horizontal size. It's killing me.

    be sure you clean the negative before putting it away after use. and clean the negative carrier as well, it gets messy.

    It helps a little. It won't really help if the scratch is in a uniform area like a sky. It minimizes the scratch but then you can see the outline of the oil which slightly increases the density of the negative. In more chaotic areas of the negative it works better.
