    Tetenal rebranded a lot.
    State the complete name, please. Probably it is manufactured by Ilford, Agfa or Kentmere.
    Tetenal used to tell the expiration date when told the batch number. Just try to contact them via their website.

    A few RC papers:
    Tetenal Vario Comfort = Ilford Multigrade IV, pre-Harman.
    Tetenal Work Vario = Tetenal Vario Ultra = Agfa MCP.
    Tetenal Vario = Kentmere VC Select (current paper).
    The graded RC is Kentmere and most of the FB is Agfa AFAIK.

    Yes, I did realize this was only a simple mistake; just having fun with you! :wink: I never learned Danish, so you have the advantage.

    George Carlin is an American comedian.

    OK Jim..... I was not offended .......
    And Dave.... it is understandable.... did you use a translating machine ?? If so.. do not use it an other time...
    But living in a small country, I had to learn 3 languages besides danish..... but never learned to write any of them.......but I try.....
    Andreas.... I have the 'Art.number' and the other informations..... good idea to write to Tetenal and ask them
    The paper is called TTSpeed.....
    Thanks.....

    Erik, I applaud you for knowing 4 languages, even if only in the spoken mode. I only know English. My loss!

    For our non-American friends, I heartily recommend YouTube for discovering just what George Carlin is all about. He is a master comedian/social satirist who has been skewering the human condition for over 40 years now. He is pretty much considered one of the greatest American comedians of all time and is definitely worth a look, IMHO.
