    Future of AZO

    Hi Guys:

    Forgive me for bringing this up if it's already been covered...

    I havent' heard for sure that Kodak is dropping AZO. Does anyone know for sure. I know M. Smith is working on some replacement paper, but I'd like to know about teh AZO. I have a few thousand sheets which should last me a while, but in case it gets ruined in a flood or something.....

    -Mike

    Azo is not produced anymore. The last run should last several years.

    The Brazil plant where Azo was made is shut down for good........Smith posted there was plenty of stock left, but I am afraid it is the end of azo by Kodak....

    Just so anyone finding this thread through a search gets a more complete story, Here are links to a couple of important posts by Michael A Smith to the effect that he and Paula Chamlee are dedicated to ensuring that high-quality silver chloride paper continues to be available for any forseeable future.

    Today I took delivery of AZO grade two and three in boxes of 100 sheets. And, plenty more where that came from I am happy to say, thanks to Michael and Paula Chamlee:
    (www.michaelandpaula.com) & Mike Jacobson, (artcraft@peopleps.com) All you will ever need to know is there! Best wishes Stan. L-B
