Does anyone out there know of any researchers (or distributors) who are using
pressure sensitive film (eg. Fuji prescale film) and would be willing to
part with some?

I make the request in this forum because we need a very small portion of the
normal selling quantity of 27cm x 5m (@$650 CDN). The Canadian distributor will
not reduce the minimal order quantity.
We require much less than 1 metre for our study, so we don't really want to
pay the full price as this is a limited study.

The contact pressures we are dealing with range up to about 5-10 kgf/cm^2.
With Fuji brand film this is their lowest pressure mat. (Ultra super low or
super low in the Fuji nomenclature). We can adjust our protocol to elicit
higher pressures as well, which would allow us to use either film type.

We have the Fuji densitometer available to us, so our lives would work out
wonderfully if someone out there had some "extra" Fuji film.
However, I would like to hear from anyone using any brand of pressure
sensitive film who may be able to help us out.

Thanks in advance,
