    510-Pyro

    I found this recipe on another site and really like it.

    Just add chemicals in order and then heat to about 150F stirring to dissolve the chemicals.

    It works as a one solution staining developer. Use it like HC-110, measure, add to water and go.

    I use it with 400 Tri-x 120 at 1:200 @70 degrees for 12 minutes.
    HP5 in 4x5 I use 1:100 for 6.5 minutes @ 70 degrees.

    Jay has come up with a nice staining developer that was easy for me to use as I didn't have to change procedures from the HC-110 I've used before.

    I understand this developer has a very long shelf life, but I've only been using it about two months.

    If you don't want to buy bulk chemicals, Artcraft sells a kit. That's how I used it the first time.

    I've been using a water rinse and TF-4 fixer

    510-pyro kits still made ?

    Hi folks,

    Does anyone know if the 510-pyro kits are still made ? Artcraft doesn't seem to list them anymore.

    regards

    Artcraft will make any kit to order. You could just ask them.

    Its easy to mix on your own as it consists of only 4 chemicals. Heat up the TEA until it is warm and mix in the Vitamin C, Pyrogallol and Phenidone.

    The stain will be a light brown. Highlights will be translucent.

    Hi Jason,

    I don't own an accurate set of scales as I haven't mixed my own chemistry yet.. So if it came pre measured and I have success with it then I'll probably buy a set of scales.

    I would like to use it with some rolls of 33mm HIE I have stored away in my freezer.

    regards

    Do you use 510-Pyro ?

Is anyone else struggling with this? This developer seems to have people very polarized as to their affections for it. If I could solve my low zone density issues, I would love the stuff. I'll admit to not being a soot and chalk fan so perhaps I'm more sensitive to the behavior?

    Can people who are using or have used 510-Pyro let us know if you also have concerns about the shadow detail in your prints ?

    regards

    In the absence of any replies to my question, I might re-phrase it....
