Subject: [ARSCLIST] Linseed Oil tape contamination
I've been given a few acetate 7" 1/4" tapes which by the smell of them
(as a child I used to oil my cricket bat with it) appear to have linseed oil
on them, to varying degrees and probably there for many years. The oil has
dried to a glue. Sand has adhered to the tapes in spots. The tapes have been
stored in cardboard boxes which are partially soaked in the oil as if having
sat flat in a shallow puddle of oil.
General (non tape) instructions I found online mentioned removing linseed
oil with acetone and ethanol as solvents. I applied some acetone to a short,
blank section of tape and the tape was dissolved almost instantly. Does
anyone have experience with this problem?
