Dancan Plastic Film Cans

We are proud to present our program of 8 film cans in 35 and 16mm and film cores. Our stabilized film cans are the only true archival film can in the world. ( Extended term storage conditions specified by SMPTE, ISO, FIAF). We manufacture our film cans in a copolymer polypropylene called Moplen. This material is the highest quality you can get. It moulds easily, has a good feeling and no tendency to warpage.We deliver in standard in blue. Other colors on request.

All our filmcans can delivered with 2 pcs. 8mm holes for ventilation (chimneys) in 35mm cans and 2 pcs. 6mm holes in 16mm cans. This is an option. Some archives don’t want this feature so they don’t get it.
