I can not make any comment on the Fomapan T200 sheet film due to the fact this is an exclusive product for the USA.
In Europe normally only available on 35mm and 120 roll film.
Indeed a very special emulsion:
But OK, here is where you have to sent your (defective) films:

But maybe Freestyle L.A. is also able to solve this simple problem for you

Thank you so much, ill try freestyle first and then your options.
FWIW, I've been using bulk-loaded Fomapan 400, sold as Arisa.EDU Ultra, as my standard 400-speed film for a while. My first box was fine in PC-Glycol developer, but the second box produces pinholes such as you describe in that developer, but not in DS-10. I don't know precisely why this is happening, but presumably there was some batch-to-batch variation in the emulsion that's caused an incompatibility with PC-Glycol (using sodium carbonate solution as the activator). It's conceivable that something similar is causing your problems, but with HC-110 rather than PC-Glycol as the developer that's bringing out the problem. If you're willing to take the time, you could shoot a test roll, cut it into pieces, and develop the pieces in whatever developers you have on hand to try to find a developer that won't activate the problems.
