Re: [ARSCLIST] Fwd: Sticky AGFA PEM 469

I have some reels of PEM 468 1/2". It does not appear to be sticky or otherwise problematic. Is this tape doomed too?

Hi, Bob,

Well, I've heard this, too. Problem is it has lots of signs of being an urban legend. While people have said they've heard of this, no one that I've heard of has come forwards and actually said they did it and provide the recipe. If this is the technique, I would encourage someone to point us to a reference. I would also like to hear HOW it works--at least some plausible theory (which may not be true, but at least an attempt at explaining the chemistry/physics of the process).
