    You want Neutol WA?
    Pretty simple to make.. Really just a simple PQ developer.. the only thing Agfaish is that they used Potassium instead of Sodium (like many of Agfa's brews due to their availability from Bayer) salts. And the results are not really special enough to be special...

    Even if they want to mix their own developers, not everyone around the world has access to the necessary raw chemicals. Even in the UK, some of the more obscure chemicals can be a problem to source (though to be fair, the usual suspects used in developers are easy). Given the likely demise of Neutol WA, this could be a very timely introduction.

    It's going to need good working life in my Nova for me to use it so I will be looking on with interest at first user's reports...

    Cheers, Bob.

    Simon,

    Is Canada lumped in with the US for the first launch, or do we have to wait until the new year?

    Looking forward to a nice bottle of Warmtone for those cold Janury nights.

    Do Ilford have any scans of prints developed in this new developer to post yet?

    Hi Simon,
    How about Asia ? Do you mean "all the distributors" including Chugai of Japan ?
    I'm happy to know that ILFORD has launched new products. I'm a big fun of ILFORD products. I've learned B&W through them.
    I would like to see ILFORD's new products in our local stores. I really want to. I would also like to buy and use which we don't have now, such as Microphen, DELTA3200 in 120, RC warm, DD-X, etc.

    I got my hands on a bottle of cooltone developer, and have been printing up a storm over the holidays. So far, I'm quite pleased with the new developer. I got a noticably cooler tone using this developer on Portfolio paper than I did using cooltone paper and regular Multigrade developer.

    I've noticed that regular MG IV paper developed in MG developer leaves a green cast that I don't like, and the cooltone developer goes a long way to getting rid of that. Toning in selenium also helps. Unfortunately, I have a 2.5 litre bottle of MG concentrate on the shelf that I probably won't use now.

    Thanks Simon, a great new product!
