    Are all the faint white lines hairs or damage from when you removed the remjet?

    Quite interested to try this film if I could find it. I'm down to my last few rolls of 320T and it would be good to find another fast tungsten film.

    Some of the faint white lines are the negative image of remjet that wasn't completely washed off. It's the first time I had ever hand processed film before, so it was a very imperfect process for the first couple rolls.

    The more recent ones are much cleaner

    Here is what WIKIPEDIA says:

    "Motion picture film, primarily because of the rem-jet backing, requires different processing than standard C-41 process color film. The process necessary is Eastman Color Negative 2 (ECN-2), which has an initial step using an alkaline bath to remove the backing layer. There are also minor differences in the remainder of the process. If motion picture negative is run through a standard C-41 color film developer bath, the rem-jet backing will partially dissolve and destroy the integrity of the developer and, potentially, ruin the film."

    So how do you wash away rem-jet backing? What, for that matter, IS rem-jet backing?

    The more I look at these pictures, the more I think the reticulation is due to the rem-jet backing. As it is too big to be actual grain from the image.

    Rem-jet is a certain back layer serving as well as antistatic as well as a an anti-halation layer. It is formed of carbon particles in a binder dissolving in weak alkali.


    See for the designation itself:
