8mm film generally lasts around 50-70 years before it starts to degrade, although this can be affected by a number of factors such as storage conditions and how the film was manufactured.
The lifespan of your 8mm film can be shortened if it is not kept in a cool, dry loca-tion. Sunlight, heat and humidity can all speed up the process of degradation.
The base of the film (the cellulose acetate) is particularly susceptible to degrada-tion and if this starts to deteriorate, it can cause the film to become brittle and break easily.
The image layer of the film (the emulsion) can also be affected by degradation, causing the colours to fade and the images to become blurred.
