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 all stable, no package ripping occurs, the wetting agents function properly, the gels harden acording to our calculations and the entire package leaves the coater stripe free and in good condition.
On our small coater we are also always curious if the coating arrives dry.
Everything worked fine so we can continue in January with real emulsions to check on the photographic properties as well.
