    What kind of Agfa x-ray film is it? I think there are a couple of variations of green sensitive Agfa, I recently bought some Ortho CP-G plus which I've cut down to 9x12.

    It is marked on the box as "G-Plus". Hope this helps..

    Probably the same stuff, your processing times will be helpful; thanks! I developed a few sheets of 9x12cm (cut down) but the temperature was so high in my darkroom (about 26C) that I've stopped testing until the weather cools a bit (my darkroom is in a basement room without aircon).

    I use Fuji HRT green sensitive film. Afga looks a bit sharper. Since it's green sensitivity, do you process it under a red safelight. Fuji HRT had emulsions on both sides and scratches easily. Is it the same with Agfa?

    I actually cut, load and develop under an OC safelight pointed a the Ceiling . The Agfa also has emulsion on both sides and it does scratch easily. I think the scratches I’m getting are from my cutting process and not during development.

    I did not do a lot of testing but this combination seems to be working. The next test will be using it out in the field.

    I think Xray film is great value

    Despite Xray film's quirks, it's a great film as long as you know it's limitations. But processing the film under a safelight is a real convenience. I've also experimented with the film for making enlarged copy negs. I make an 8x10 print from a small neg then sandwich the print on Xray film. It works pretty well. It's process I don't use anymore. I've used hybrid processes to make my alternative process negs.
