Motion picture film can be made of various materials of which informs us of the correct process for storage, handling, and duplication. Cellulose nitrate and cellulose acetate film bases are chemically unstable and require special action to minimise the risk of total loss as well as the risk of damage to collections held nearby.
The following general guidelines pertain to the handling of polyester-based film; cellulose nitrate and cellulose acetate films require special protocols.
Motion picture films and especially the silver particles or color dyes are highly sensitive to environmental conditions; good storage is arguably the best preservation measure one can take:
Nitrate-base film is highly flammable (can self-ignite at ambient temperatures around 100 degrees F), cannot be extinguished once ignited, and is therefore a serious fire hazard. Quantities of nitrate film in excess of 25 pounds are subject to storage and handling standards prescribed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 40: Standard for the Storage and Handling of Cellulose Nitrate Film ).
Immediate actions for nitrate film:
Further Information on Nitrate Film
Cellulose acetate film, also known as "safety" film, is not flammable like cellulose nitrate film, but it is also unstable and undergoes an autocatalytic degradation mechanism that results in embrittlement, shrinkage, and eventual total loss of the image. Like nitrate film, degrading cellulose acetate produces gases that are harmful to other collection items.
