A little about Celluloid-
-Its no longer being made by any manufacture, so once whats out there is gone, that will be the end of Celluloid.
-When it was made, it was highly flammable when curing, so special care needed to be made
-If not cured long enough after it was cut into slabs and into rods, it could bow, so curing was a timely process. Some celluloids need years to cure correctly, although cooking at a slow temperature for some months can speed up this process.
-Almost all celluloid is now at least 10 years old as the cost/quantities and processes need to make celluloid these days is MUCH harder as it was also very toxic to manufacture.
