    Is there a adox paper that can be used for the bromoil process?

    I need a non-supercoated paper.

    I believe that all papers these days, to some degree, are super coated. I would point you to Fomabrom Variant IV 123, an excellent paper for Bromoil.

    Cheers -

    Bromoil Paper

    We actually produced a matte, grade 2 bromoil paper without supercoating.
    It is called Bromoprint and still available in 8x10 Inch and 11x14 Inch.

    You can find it in our webshop but by now it is 8 years old and might be little low in contrast.

    Best regards,

    Mirko

    My best results in bromoil have been with super-coated papers. My all-time favorite paper for bromoil was Agfa MCC 118. R.I.P.!
