The film base may be thinner , I am not sure about that, but the film curls very easily - be prepared to deal with that when you handle it in the dark. I have rolled many PPF rolls by hand, it is a cumbersome procedure, but feasible. Latelr opted for a bulk loader - I take several meters of film from the original can and rol this film around a cardboard cilindrical core . Then I place it inside the bulk loader and use it te usual way.
