Cellon Ltd. made varnishes and finishes. It seems to have been called a doping agent when used to make wing cloth airtight.

We have some slim sources about the company and its products which for aeroplanes were cited for decades.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

Dir1920, p57 lists a "dope" agent in Adelaide; p18: one in Buenos Aires. These are possibly marketing agents for the product made in Kingston-upon-Thames.
