Re: [AV Media Matters] Decaying rubber parts

When films arrive here with horrid decaying elastic bands (or inelastic if
you are a physics purist) wrapped around them then we use perchloroethylene
to remove the goop (with a bit of care).  This is OK for film but perc
might be a bit viscious on some other materials.  Test first.
