    Substitute for selenium toner

    Is there a substitute if Kodak stops furnishing it? You just know if paper is gone, chemicals are soon to follow.

    I'm sure there are formulas out there, in addition to products offered by Berg, Edwal, and others.

    I'm sure Wolfgang Moersch would make one. Check out his carbon toner, a great replacement for the old Agfa Viradon.

    There are already several other suppliers: Fotospeed & Maco spring to mind. I think some of the chemical suppliers also supply their own versions.

    Cheers, Bob.

    In my effort to be totally independent of Kodak I switched to Berg selenium toner. My KRST will be all used up shortly and I see no reason why other selenium toners won't be just as good.

    Fotospeed sell a fine range of Toners in the UK, including Selenium, Gold, Sepia etc. Visit: www.fotospeed.com
    They may be able to cater for overseas orders for their chemicals.

    I think Freestyle carries Fotospeed products in the US.

    When you say "coincidence": I just got the new that an Adox toner is now available - Adolux Selenid is the name.
