    I am looking for the recipe for stabilizer with formalin to treat the E-6 films after development, provided by Photo Engineer here on APUG. I searched the archive but couldn't locate one that is definitive. Will someone be kind enough to post the link or the recipe? Thanks.

    Can I buy some ready to use product from Kodak etc? I am using the Arista kit that doesn't come with STAB, unlike the Tetenal kit (quite a bit more expensive here in the US) and hence the question.

    From my notes:
    800mL distilled water
    Photoflo 200 0.8mL
    Formalin (37% aqueous Formaldehyde) - 3mL
    distilled to 1L

    For making a 1% Formaline solution (in 1 ltr.) you need 27ml 37% Formaldehyde. Any % between 0,5% and 1% will do it.
