    The latter are sold directly by Agfa.
    (Beware of quantities.)

    Some conversions are sold by Maco.

    X-ray film gets is dense blacks from the "hot and fast" development in very active developers. When used for pictorial photography is is fairly easy to develop in common camera film developers such as D-76, HC-110, etc., and get full toned images. You just have to experiment with exposure times and development times.
    In some cases you can develop by inspection under a deep red safelight.

    Ecxept for dental films I guess the majority of medical films are designed for use with fluorescent srcreens.
    I further guess in industrial use there will be less employment of screens which will result in different emulsion design.


    Don,

    I somehow overlooked your post... You said it all.

    However industrial films will need more likely less speed than medical films. Thus an unsensitized industrial film could be less grainy than an unsensitized medical film.
    speaking of dental films, anybody ever play with Kodak T-Mat film? I have a box of 8x10 and 6x12 here, wondering where to start....

    We used to use the industrex out where I work. When I got the chems ready I would always put some under the enlarger and print on it from a 4X5 negative. It acts more like paper than film. If you wanted to make transparent contact prints from your 7X17 negs it would work well. It has a blue cast when finished that goes neutral with an incandescent light source behind it. It develops to completion like paper in Dektol or Industrex developer. The Industrex developer is more potent than Dektol having a higher ph from using sodium Hydroxide. I have quite a few 14X17 transparent prints. Kind of fun, different, but not practical to display.

    Erie,
    I've been using 8x10 T-Mat L-RA for a few months now. I like the look and it's pretty easy to work with. I bought one box that was 3 years past date, stored in a warehouse, and the base fog is just barely noticeable.

    "Silver Rich"?????

    It either has enough, or it doesn't.

    What was your starting EI and development, it'd be nice to be in the ball park, as I hate cutting up film to 4x5 for EI testing.

    For D76 1:1 I've been shooting it around 125 and developing in trays for 6 min. This usually gives me good contrast for palladium. One thing to consider though, I am only using older lenses with a packard shutter and generally in overcast conditions. Hope this helps.
