    Yeah, just like the old C22 and E4 stabilizer baths for color films (and papers). Except for the mercury!

    Well, I said no such thing. Photo Flo 200 can certainly make you ill and it may even kill you, but it is not an overt poison like Photo Flo 600 which will kill you. And I am told that the death is slow and agonizing as it turns off your kidneys.

    How come 3X concentration makes a possible poison a definite fatal poison? I read there are difference in preservatives but I would think if it's a fatal one at 3x, then 1x would be just as dangerous....
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    It's not the same chemical. Photo-flo 200 uses propylene glycol as one of the components. Propylene glycol is commonly used in small quantities as a food additive, as well as an emulsifier in some liqueurs. Photo-flo 600 replaces the propylene glycol with ethylene glycol. Ethylene glycol is commonly used as antifreeze, and is incredibly toxic. A tablespoon requires hospitalization, and as little as 2 tablespoons can be deadly.

    I have said that about the Photo Flo family and EG vs PG so many times, I'm tired of typing it in. Thanks Nick. It does tell everyone here that it is useful to read (and compare) labels and the MSDS of the various things we use.

    Oh, I see. I missed that part.

    Not being a chemist, things like that doesn't pop out at me. I just try not to drink any of these yummy looking chemicals in my darkroom.

    The MSD Sheets are made fro non-chemists to help them avoid killing themselves or making themselves ill (or what have you). They are your friend and are there to be read from end to end.

    You may not drink it, but those of us with small children around need this sort of information.

    As for the suggestion that I cut and paste from a document, well, I want to teach you all to pay attention to what you are doing and what you are doing it with!

    My best wishes goes out to you all!
