    I would be surprised as one responder has said if Ilford has changed FB to the new flat version and said nothing about it.

    As a RC user, I have tried to keep tabs on this thread and cannot recall seeing anything about a launch.

    So, if I am right the good news is that if some of us have seen no change, it's because there has been no change and NOT that the new labels is the new stuff that has failed. The bad news is that we don't have a timescale for the change.

    It may be still "work in progress" and if Ilford have said nothing, it's because there is nothing new to report.

    Dear All,

    Sorry for the delay in replying, day job got in the way !!!

    The new stay flat technology has not been applied to any production batches as yet, technically we have some issues to address, as well as
    ensuring the new coatings have exactly the same properties and longevity.
    I can assure you it is coming and I will most certainly let you know when
    we intend to launch, we will obviously have a 'marketing' announcement as well.

    Regards

    Thank You Simon, That is the answer I am after. I am going to fill the freezer with paper when the new stuff is launched and do a fifo system, freeze a new box. I'm paranoid about the supply...Evan Clarke

    I'm also one of those eagerly looking forward to flat fiber paper. All my big and heavy photo books are filled with FB prints for flattening.

    Cheers,

    I just noticed some prints that I did on the Fotokemika FB that dried flatter than anything I've done in the past. 8x10's only, but I have some 11x14 to test. Both the papers seemed to dry rather flat. I'm not trying to take away from Ilford's great paper but just thought everyone should know.

    Simon. That's great. Oh and as a little addition can you ensure that it can be archivally washed in about 1-2 mins max. Shouldn't be that difficult surely?

    Only kidding! Just a little levity to counterbalance some of the earnestness I've seen.
