Remjet is a protective layer on the base of motion picture film that protects from light piping, base scratches, static, and halation of highlights in exposure.
It was notably used on Kodachrome (K-14 process) originally in still photography. CineStill films do not have remjet backing. Remjet is incompatible with standard still film processing and will contaminate the chemicals and the film. Film with remjet must be processed using ECN-2 motion picture lab processing which is incompatible with the short lengths used in still photography.
