In addition, I am curious as to which developer those who are experienced with the paper have used in the past, and their comments concerning such developers. Thanks.

    I also have registered for a few boxes of the paper.


    I realy liked a phenidone version of Ansco 130, it gave wonderful gradation and cooled the image tone down to right where I like it. I've been printing on my last box of Fortezo this week. Tonight I discovered I have a box of Polywarmtone in the freezer that I didnt even know I had...not sure yet how much is left in it though...

    Went up on the Polywarmtone site to day and there is a new update on the blog. Good news that progress is starting to be made again.

    Thanks Mirko!!

    Unfortunately the whole construction in the factory was delayed due to more complicated than expected financing paperwork.
    But now things are cleared and construction is going on.
    Once we have the second story built in the middel hall, the cooling cycle is up and running and all darkroom blinds and safelights are installed the kettle could theoretically go live.

    The only burden to take now is the silverprice to drop. At the current level making monochrome papers makes no sense but we are in good mood that it will keep dropping. "

    Looks like much is going on with Polywarmtone again! I just came from the Adox FB page - the machine has been set and the walls are being tiled! This really does trump all the Kodak news in my mind!!

    For PWT to come back would be a grand gift. Such an awesome paper.

    I really thank you ADOX for bring back MCC. Incredible contribution and hard-work for all of us.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Are there any dates on expected release? I can't wait to see this paper hit the stores. I used my last box a few months ago and really miss this beautiful paper.

    +1 on MCC, great paper - even better than the Agfa version to my mind because I like the whiter base better.

    I've never used Polywarmtone and right now use Ilford MGWT FB for my warm tone prints, and MCC 110 for my neutral ones. How does Polywarmtone compare to Ilford MGWT FB?

    Polywarmtone has a warmer tone than MGWT and has a different and i believe a more straight curve than MGWT which has a fairy steep curve with a more pronouced shoulder. Polywarmtone is also easier to manipulate with different toners.
    MGWT is a great paper and i use it now that my Polywarmtone stach is gone but should we get Polywarmtone back and with the same characteristics i will switch back momentarily.

    In addition to Polywarmtone Forte also made a graded paper named Fortezo which is very similar to Polywarmtone and i am lucky to have some left in grade 2 and 3
