Good news !

On monday July 6th 2008 we succesfully coated MCP 310 and 312.
The paper is now drying down and hardening. After confectioning we will be able to ship in late August.

We also plan the next coating to take place in Oktober with Shipping in November/December.

We are now officially accepting orders for the paper.

Best regards,

Mirko

MCP 111 is the glossy surface, right? What are the 310 and 312 surfaces?

Gary,

MCP 310 and 312 is resin coated. The 3 in the nomenclature signifies that.
MCC 111 is the glossy, but that's fiber based. I think that MCC is coming later in the season if I'm not mistaken.

You've got Oompa Loompas making photo paper now, have you?

Are these the old AGFA papers? Like Portriga, etc?

I am sure I will try some but how about some descriptive names like "Multicontrast Glossy?" On the other hand, "ADOX MCP 310" does have an anachronistic charm to it.

Wonderful news, Mirko! Just received my tests sheets today - can't wait to get into the darkroom tomorrow to test it out. Looking forward to being able to purchase it soon.

Just so there is no confusion: MCP 310 and 312 are RC papers glossy and matt coated on someone elses machine with our emulsion.

The machine we will make the MCC on is still beeing assembled and thus we can present the RC paper now but not the fibre version.

Yes, these papers will be just like the ones made by Agfa Germany before. Just the base has changed a bit in the meantime and there will be no backprint.

You can order directly with us (info@fotoimpex.de) or contact freestyle for north america.

Best regards,

Mirko

When MCP is eventually coated onto the new machine, will there be a noticeable difference to the current paper?

How could anyone know that in advance?

Experience? They have engineers and technicians.

Well it depends on what one calls noticeable.
There are noticeable differences between any batch of photopaper but you might need very precise instruments to measure this.

As far as MCP is concerned there is no necessary difference. We can adjust any parameter on the old machine which we can adjust on the contract coaters machine. The engineers in charge know how to shape the curve and which other knobs to turn. So I donīt expect anyone to see any difference.

Best regards,

Mirko

we started shipping the new MCP 310 and 312 just before Photokina.

We hope to get into a stable production cycle within the first quarter of 2009.

Right after that we will also start making the fibre version.

Kind regards,

Mirko

Are there any samples of 312 available?

Gary,

yes we have sample packs in a metric format: 24x30 cm.
We sold over 500 at Photokina and have a good stock in Berlin.

Freestyle has the small 8x10"/25 packs, so thereīs no need for additional sample packs.

If anyone from the US would like to try the metric paper samples before freestyle gets their shippment in we would ask for postage only.

Kind regards,

Mirko

We coated the first batch of MCP in January 2009 made in the actual large production kettles which are newly installed at InovisCoatīs. The coating went well and we hope to be able to ship paper within 4-5 Weeks from today.
The quality is right on the spot with the last batch made by Agfa in Leverkusen. We hope to reach stable supply of MCP within a few weeks as we are ready to recoat now anytime.

Kind regards,

Mirko
