Up to now we have only "simulated" Polywarmtone by coating single layer extracts and calculating the result. Now it is time to merge it all in one package on the coater. In order to start we simulated the calculated package on the cascade with dyed gelatine layers. From this you can learn if the package is at...

There was a lot of interest on the subject. The film is excellent for filtration and super fine grained. Together with the new HR-50 we also presented the new HR-DEV developer. On our ADOX-FOTOIMPEX...

We coated a first trial with CHS 100 II emulsion in Marly about a month ago. The samples were photographically analized and found to be good. Since we had some leftovers Franz had the brilliant idea to cut them up to 4x5 Inch and Bijan stuck them in our Linhof Camera and took this nice group...

We started working on the coater and web. After 10 years of sleep the Agfa technology was woken up and adopted. Later we will merge her with Ilford´s Swiss technololy. The dry construction guys (actually a girl) finished the walls of the melting and coating control room. Once the dust has cleared we can continue on...

New knife shafts and knives are in. The web transport was overhauled and adjusted. Only the knife shaft downholder is still in production. We try to make a first slitting despite next week on a thin base.   Januarry...

In March and April works continued as planned. The coating alley now has the walking floors, the coolhouse doors are mounted and the melting room is being installed.   [caption id="attachment_6716" align="aligncenter" width="4032"] Wall elements for the tiles in the chemical preparation[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_6717" align="aligncenter" width="3956"] Walking floors inside the coating alley.

A bit of time has lapsed after the last update and we had inquiries if the project is continued at all. This can be answered with a clear "yes". The immediate follow up question ususally is: When will Polywarmtone be available? This question cannot be answered easily. Everything in photo chemistry is outrageoulsy complex and cannot be...
