Non-flame Retardant Gels/Diffusion -- Will they melt/burn?
I just recently purchased the Diffusion Pack from Lee Filters that comes with six different kinds of diffusion in the form of 10x12" sheets.
I bought this pack in hopes to find the type of diffusion I like best and then in the future purchase a 48x48" frame and buy a larger portion of the that diffusion.
Here's my issue: These diffusion gels are non-flame retardant. This would be fine if the gels were in a frame on a c-stand away from the lighting instrument, but will these gels be fine attaching to the barn doors of an Arri Fresnel Clones from CAME-TV. The lights in question would be the 1K, 650 & 300.
I just want to use some diffusion for a while without buying expensive frames/c-stands.
