type 809 film problems

greenspun.com : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread

I have been doing 8x10 polaroid transfers for years and just recently started having a problem with seperating the positive and negative pieces of film. Each time a fairly large portion of the negative, typically in the corner, will adhere to the positive side. I tried peeling from the opposite side and am still having this problem. Tried different packs of film and still am having these problems. I am wondering if it could be my processor? I use a Calumet processor. Would love to hear any possible solutions if you can offer. Thanks.

I don't kmow if you live in an area where the water has changed or if you use bottled water for your process. My work has changed dramatically since Chloramines were added to the water system. Other than that, could the processor have become damaged? Is it the same corner of the film? Good luck.
