PEC*PADs are strong, non-abrasive, lint-free and pure (99.999%). They are so soft and versatile that they can be safely used to clean all types of sensitive surfaces such as scanners, CD’s, mirrors, lenses, telescopes, even ink jet print heads.
USING PEC PADS ON PHOTOGRAPHIC EMULSIONS WITH PEC-12 :
PEC*PADs can be safely used on all hardened photographic emulsions, including films and papers. Extreme care must be used with 35mm chromogenic film because the base of these films are very easily scratched. PEC*PADs can also be used on coated or uncoated photographic lenses, binoculars and telescopes without scratching delicate coatings.
- Put the image to be cleaned onto a sheet of glass (light table) or onto the emulsion side of a clean old scrap RC print.
- Dispense a few drops of PEC-12 onto a clean PEC*PAD.
- With the gentle pressure of two or three extended fingers start at one end of the film/print to be cleaned, and smoothly move your fingers toward the opposite end in a straight line removing contaminants from the emulsion by transferring them to the PEC*PAD.
- Extremely grimy stains (such sticky tape residue) may need a second or even a third pass (using a clean PEC*PAD and additional PEC-12).
Any material applied with enough pressure will ultimately cause scratches, but normal, prudent use of PEC*PADs will provide scratch free cleaning of slides, negatives and prints.
