    Cibachrome is now called Ilfochrome. From what I understand the Ilfochrome bleach must convert reduced silver back to silver halide, and remove the preformed dyes wherever silver was reduced. E6 bleach is not designed to do the last part since E6 films do not use preformed dyes so I don't believe it will work, if that is what you are asking.

    It's an entirely different process so the E6 bleach won't work.
