    I just take this fixer concentrate, dilute it 1+6 with water, then use it for anything from negative film to paper. The time for B/W films is about 3-4 minutes under some agitation, and about the same for all RC papers. It always worked perfectly, though I always use a 2% acetic acid stop bath to keep the fixer fresher.

    Good luck,
    Zhenya

    In Way Beyond Monochrome, the authors describe a method of testing the clearing time for paper. I prefer the Tetenal test strips for peace of mind.

    The use of film strength fixer is part of the Ilford archival method that they describe in their documentation. I assume they have done the necessary testing to prove the method works, as they presumably have for their reduced water use method for washing that many people have adopted.


    Cheers, Bob.
