  • soluble
  • films of soluble film-forming material such as polyvinyl alcohol, it is the conventional practice to fiow a film of a solution of the film-forming material onto the casting surface, for example,'a metal wheel or belt, cause the solvent to be substantially completely removed from the liquid film whereby to form a self-sustaining film, and to strip the resulting film from the casting surface.
