    Shameless plug. I have an unopened box of the good old stuff from before they made it environmentally sound in the classifieds.

    Polywarmtone Plus was my base paper. I found Ilford Multigrade FB Warmtone developed in PQ Universal or 130 and toned in KRST comes close in color but.... has a lower contrast curve; especially microcontrast.
    I cool down Polywarmtone Plus so I have a bias. I don't run density test strips but a 25 sheet box of Oriental Warmtone FB indicates it has higher contrast than Ilford MG WT. Oriental is about .5 zone short recording the higher zones vs Ilford. Fotokemika Varycon FB VC is cooler than the 3 papers mentioned with steeper contrast than Ilford MG WT. Varycon also lacks an extended upper tonal range. Expect to burn in more. I prefer Oriental WT due to its curve and tonal richness. Its image color is warm on a white base but not too warm when toned in KRST.

    Sure, I am just waiting abour the first samples Fomatone MG 532 and later the first batch of "Fomatone MG PW14"

    It's a main project between some European manufactureres and distributors from Germany (Moersch), France (Bergger) and the Netherlands (Fotohuis).

    As soon we have found a reliable distributor (for Moersch Photochemie) for the USA and Canada the stuff can go around the other side of the pond. Also Bergger will be able to distribute under their own label.

    Are we looking at a few months? 6 months? A year or more? Just curious how much of my limited stock I can safely use without going cold turkey.

    When you say 1:1, do you mean its got the exact properties?

    Will this lith print the same as the polywarmtone?

    It will be very successful if they manage that.

    Just wondering if there's any news on this project.

    Thanks!
