    Hello,

    I have just been given a box of expired x-ray film (Kodak T-Mat G/RA - 18x24cm) so i was going to try using it like normal neg and see what i get.

    The only things im trying to figure out is the stocks ISO (for the life of me i can't find it out - i even called Kodak and no one could help me), and how to process it.

    Can anyone help me out with these questions?

    Thank you,

    Benjamin.

    Do a search - there have been many posts over the last year or so, lots in the last month.
    There is no ISO- it's a specialty film - ISO means exposed and developed to VERY specifics- not applicable.
    BUT you should find reports of Blue film at EI 200 and Green film at EI 50 for daylight starting points.
    Develope it in D76 for starters- your search will turn up experience- especially by PHOTOTONE with example photos etc. If I had any skills I could give you a link, but I don't.

    Also do a search over at the Large Format forum. They have had a couple of long x-ray film threads running for the last few months.
