    Flexicolor Stabilizer III & Replenisher - Where is it?!

    I usually get it from one source on eBay, but that seller is on vacation and it won't let me order some...

    I find it hard to believe that it's the only place to get the stuff...

    I usually dilute it 67mL per 1000mL and use it for my C41 and E6 stabilizing...

    Options? I'm not looking to go buy a half gallon of Formalin, but if that's the best way to go...

    I would prefer to get more Flex Stab.

    Thanks

    Adorama and bhphoto usually carry it. I think the dilution is 45ml to 5L, though.

    I just bought a case of this from Unique Photo. They had a great price, easy shipping (no hazmat) and were great to work with. They are my new go-to place for C41, I think.

    The Kodak Flexicolor C-41 stabilizer I use comes in 45mL bottles ($5) and calls for 9mL dilution per liter.

    thanks, Tom. That confirms my 45ml / 5L ratio. This is for the normal C41 flexicolor stabilizer III. There are -RA and probably -LORR versions as well, I'd guess. They may have different dilutions.

    the unique photo website only shows RA4 stabilizer. Which one did you get?

    Would over-concentrated stabilizer have any adverse effects?

    Sorry, I got it at PDI Supply, who were also great to work with, I dealt with Art Yockel thesales manager. This is the item

    http://www.pdisupply.com/ProductDeta...6#.Ul9PPjW9KSM

    I think it was about $50 for the case, but everything on their site is now call for pricing. It was a great price in any case, and they were excellent to work with (PDI).
