About Photographic Solutions

PEC*PADs are the ideal photo wipes for those who hate photowipes! Until PEC*PADs came along, photowipes fell apart, left lint and scratched emulsions. PEC*PADs are extremely strong, lint-free and so soft and pure (99.999%) it is almost impossible to scratch an emulsion with them. PEC*PADs are so soft they can be safely used to clean all types of sensitive surfaces : scanners, CD's, mirrors, lenses, telescopes etc. When PEC*PADs are used with PEC-12(r), they are ideally suited for cleaning photographic film and print emulsions. PEC*PADs are available in two convenient sizes. The 4 x 4 inch (10 cm.sq.) wipes are perfect for cleaning 35mm and other small areas; the 9 x 9 inch (25 cm.sq.) wipes are best suited for larger film or print formats, murals, scanners etc.

Good for cleaning slides

Use with Pec-12 to clean slides before scanning. Works, and they don't scratch.

Most Liked Negative Review

 

Not worth the cost

Too bulky to carry around in my bag. A couple of microfiber cloths and a blower will do the trick.

Cheaper than sensor swabs

By

from New Hampshire  -  Photo Enthusiast

one pack of Pec Pads and a 2oz. bottle of eclipse is like a life time supply of sensor swabs for $20! Why spend big $ on pre made swabs when you can make your own cheap?

I use this for ALL my film cleaning

By

from woodstock, ny  -  Pro Photographer

I use this to clean my 40 year old black and white and color film and it never scratches and leaves no lint. Could not be better. I cut the sheets into quarters to be more cost effective. i use them only once for each film application to avoid rubbing debris from a previous clean into the film.

Good for sensor not for lenses

By

from summit county  -  Photography Student

These used to come in shrink-wrap package like it's pictured, but now they come in a zip-loc type bag. That's a real shame because the zip-loc type bag allows more dust and other particles than did the shrink wrap style. Do not use these with Zeiss cleaning fluid to clean your lenses. It just smears. For lenses stick to the time tested chamois clothes (microfiber) and Zeiss will do an amazing job. These are good for cleaning the outside of your gear and for cleaning the sensor with Eclipse solution.

very useful and safe

By

I use these all the time for cleaning good lenses, cleaning old slides with PEC-12, cleaning scanner glass, and so on. And I don't worry about scratching things.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
J. VINCENT C  Recommended by a friend who is a professional photographer. Excellent product.
Lynn S  Has anyone used this to clean mold from old photos?
TAKAFUMI K  Despite what you may read and hear, it CAN damage your negative if you are not extremely careful. If you apply any pressure, friction alone will cause abrasion on the delicate emulsion surface. Even back of the film (base) can be scratched. So whatever you do, don't rub! Good way to do this is to fold this in half. put liberal amount of PEC12 on the film, then drag it inside the fold, while you hold the fold taut around the film. It's little tricky. If you apply any pressure toward the film surface, it will leave some mark.
Shopper  Does this still come in the shrink wrap or does it now come in the zip-lock type bag?
DON H  Yes, mine did, in Oct 2011.
