    hi

    i'm looking to use kodak flexicolor for my rotary processor, but am confused on exactly which reagents i need?

    do i need the starters and replenishers or just dev, bleach and fix?

    i will probably use the chemical one-shot and sling, but would appreciate any advise on re-use. btw i have used 2 bath kits before but didn't get on with them due to the heavy brown mask i was getting.

    appologies if anyone has covered this topic before, i did check for previous posts, honest.

    You need developer, bleach, fix and stabilzer.

    You might try the Kodak web site for instructions on rotary tube processing with Flexicolor or C-41 chemistry. It is all there and then some.

    PE is right. Surf over to the Kodak website and look for I think z-131. Or is it Z-130?

    But the short answer to your question is I think it depends. Kodak makes all kinds of stuff. Some needs starters. Some doesn't.

    I don't think you'll have any problem reusing and replenishing bleach and fix. I've never reused C-41 developer so can't comment on that.
