    ADOX COLLOIDA PHOTOGELATIN

    We now have two versions of ADOX COLLOIDA photogelatin.

    One is the product which has been out for almost two decades now: A photographic coating gelatin in order to make an under- or overcoat in the work with liquid emulsions. This is now called ADOX COLLOIDA "R".

    Next to this known product we now have a true precipitation gelatin (Ansatzgelatine) to make film or paper emulsions.

    This is called ADOX COLLOIDA "P".

    We placed them in different sections in the webshop but I wanted to announce this here as well so everyone knows which is the right product for him/her.

    If you own a bottle of COLLOIDA without "P" or "R" it is coating gelatin!

    Best regards,

    Mirko

    I guess "P" stands for precipitation but what is the meaning of the "R"?

    In this case "R" as in "Regular". Could have been "S" for supercoating or "U" for undercoat or a simple "C" for coating.
    "C" would have probably been a good choice as well but now the labels are printed ;-)

    Mirko,

    I'd love to buy it. Do you have a distributor in USA?

    Yes we do: Freestyle.

    They donīt carry this item yet but asking them to take it on is always a good idea ;-)

    So - what does this mean, in practice? That the "R" version is useless for making emulsions? How does a precipitation gelatine differ? Higher/lower bloom, or other things that differ?

    You can use it for precipitation but if you want consistant results you should choose the precipitation version. Basically P is the selction from the selection. The purest batches which have a narrower difference in bloom index get chosen as precipitation gelatin whilst the specs are not so strict for coating gelatin.
    I think the bloom index is also shifted a bit because from the coating gelatin usually the top layer is manufactured which is on one end of the viscosity bandwidth of a coating package. But this can also be adjusted by other means. I donīt really know this last point for sure.

    I am sorry for the late reply but I didnīt know this thread had developed later on.
