    Thanks to all for all of the advice and input. I did some introductory comparisons to MGWT using step wedges and the paper appears to be fine as far as fog goes.

    I second the Lith motion. This may be of interest to those that don't know about it yet: http://www.polywarmtone.com/

    Yes, watch how much you selenium tone it. PWT has a tendency to go evil red if you over do it (which means it's quite reactive to Se toning as Se is red in nature).
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    I have more than 80 sheets in 18x24cm, and it shines in Moersch SE5 lith.

    I have PWT from the '90's that does not show the slightest hint of fog. No OB's or incorporated dev. in this excellent paper so should be good for even longer yet.

    Hey, hope I'm not highjacking this thread. I just thought it was relevant. I'm new to the darkroom. I found a pack of forte polywarmtone in the University darkroom and I'm interested to know why people speak so highly of it.

    I read people talking about toning in some other chemicals like KRST?? What are they referring to?

    I needed exposure times of about 70 seconds for prints I made recently f11, 80mm lens. I'm wondering if this is normal?

    A page that came in the box gave some kind of correction factors but I'm not sure how to apply this.

    Any advice on how I should be taking advantage of this paper would be appreciated.
