1. don't know, don't think so.
2. No standard camera stocks are polyester based. Special Order IR
films are, that's about it; otherwise it's print and now (some, not
all) Intermediate material that's poly - (if there's a 2 or 3 at the
front of a Kodak emulsion code it's Estar, a 7 or 5 it's acetate) .
Personally I wouldn't pick a film stock to shoot on based on the
splicer I owned !
