SIMPLICITY Film Developer
Film developer sachet contains:
- ILFOSOL 3 is characterized by its ability to produce fine grain results with high sharpness and full film speed, and it is particularly well-suited for use with medium-speed films.
- ILFOSTOP is a low odor, citric acid-based stop bath that stops the development process and helps to prolong the life and activity of the fixer solution. It is recommended to ensure accurate development times.
- RAPID FIXER is a rapid-acting, non-hardening fixer that should not be used with any hardeners.
- ILFOTOL is a non-ionic wetting agent that aids in rapid, even drying of film, helps to prevent water spots from forming, and promotes anti-static qualities.
Multigrade developer is a rapid working developer usually used at a dilution of 1+9 but for greater development control and economy it can be used at 1+14. Multigrade developer is clean working and features excellent keeping properties.
It should be noted that Ilford recommends that gloves, eye protection, apron or overall be worn when handling and mixing all chemicals.
