    And they will send you a price list for plates if asked.

    What do the cardboard/plastic tabs look like?

    There were no interleaving tissues, say between the glass to glass surface
    Hi Ray, yes the older plates have no separation & are packed emulsion to emulsion & glass to glass.

    With the one box of modern Agfa plates I used the plastic separators were along the length of the plate (6.5cm). Imagine a thin length of plastic with a groove cut in it. The end of the plate fits into the groove & the slight thickness of plastic above & below this keeps the plate separate from the others. I have the pdf info sheet for these & can email to anyone who wants it, send me a PM.

    Depends of what you mean by older. See post #8.

    This was discussed a couple years ago.

    Not that there isn't interest, there isn't enough interest in one size that would justify doing the import.

    Hi AgX,

    I am not sure I follow...

    Do you mean this arrangement:
    (The x's are the bent paper strip...which should be connected!)


    Paper Wrapping (on top)
    PLATE #1 glass back
    PLATE #1 emulsion front
    xxxxxxxxx
    PLATE #2 emulsion front
    PLATE #2 glass back

    PLATE #3 glass back
    PLATE #3 emulsion front
    xxxxxxxxxx
    PLATE #4 emulsion front
    PLATE #4 glass back
    Paper Wrapping (on bottom)

    So glass is touching glass, but emulsion never touches emulsion?

    Ray, Exactly!
    With the paper strip (xxx here) forming an U, being inserted with one end a little bit into one `twin´ and with the other end inserted into the other twin.
    I haven't seen it but was described by means of a sketch this way in one of Gevaert's general manuals. Gevaert also advised this sort of assembly (with paper strips) in case one would not process plates immediately but would have to store them exposed for a while.
