Do you mean "collodion"? If so it is nitrocellulose, HIGHLY flammable and even explosive. Has a characteristic "pungent" odor.Highly unsafe and it is beyond me why would you use this product. The odor can "adhere" to clothing.You may have a ventilation system that "passes inspection" but if your techs can smell it, it is there and it should not be.Have you consulted the MSDS for this chemical?I would not use it, no matter how great it works.René

Was wondering if anyone is using the Collodian bag for cell blocks. We just got it and have been using it 'works great' but all the techs are complaining of the smell.. Our ventilation has been looked at and has passed however the smell still lingers in the room. Any suggestions??
