The emulsion is coated onto a transparent polyester base providing excellent dimensional stability. Thickness of the polyester base is 100µm (0.10 mm). The very fine grain and the high speed make this film an ideal for use in a wide range of conditions.
The spectral sensitivity of this film is extended in the near infrared panchromatic up to 750 nm. As a result, the film offers excellent penetration through haze, fog and other atmospheric conditions liable to affect the image quality, creating images that are sharp.
Although a high speed, the grain of the emulsion is low thanks to the 2-layer emulsion architecture. The low granularity makes the JCH StreetPan a film that is very easy to scan. The scans deliver noise-free images in the image highlights. JCH StreetPan 400 also has a gelatin back coating to prevent scratches on the back of the film which could be picked-up by image scanners. Base substrate layers provide permanent anti-static properties to the film, at exposure and after processing.
