    several years ago i talked to the tech support folks (in the US,so you know this was awhile ago) and they told me that basically they were the same. one label had been used in the US the other in UK and they switch back to the plant in the UK which resulted in the name change.

    perhaps simon will chime in here and set us all straight.

    Yeah, I went to B&H today and the 5L bottle of HYPAM was $10 cheaper than the Rapid Fixer. I asked the guy what the difference was and, after a few calls, they told me there was no difference.

    If there is a difference, it needs to be made more clear what it is, IMO. I have often wondered this myself...Simon???

    Dear All,

    The two products are very similar ( but not identical ) HYPAM is made to allow a hardener to be used if needed you cannot add hardener to RAPID Fix, also they are available in different volume packages in different markets.

    OK now for the beginners question.
    When would you want to use a hardener and therefore how do you choose between these products?
    thanks

    Hardeners are not really necessary these days as the emulsions have changed. People recommend using a hardener with Efke films as the emulsions are quite soft and prone to damage during processing.

    Re-use, look at the Ilford data sheets for details.
