so according to wikipedia

In May 2017, Impossible’s largest shareholder acquired the brand and intellectual property of the original Polaroid corporation.

old real polaroid papers where developing fast, in hand, like today’s instax. but polaroid originals film still after update has to be developed for 15 minutes or something like that.

so i wonder why if the polaroid originals have the intellectual property of old polaroid, they cannot recreate the old emulsion?

so i have got a couple of answers:

old formulations that do not meet current environmental regulations low volume compared to historical Polaroid purchases. Vendors are not interested.

As I had understood it, Polaroid had special contracts (as did companies like Kodak) with governing bodies and regulatory agencies to allow the use of the chemicals that were environmentally damaging or those that had been linked to causing serious health issues (usually the same).

When Polaroid went belly up, the agreements dissolved.

as I say, once you loose technology, it is very hard to bring it back. even if you are a company behind the product and own all the so called intellectual property.

The second area of focus is looking for opportunities to expand our portfolio of products. Most likely that would mean bringing back an emulsion from bygone days. It’s not as simple as you may think, because many older products would have to be reformulated based on changes in the manufacturing process and/or EH&S regulations.
