    Films with UV blockers

    As I'm starting to work with carbon printing, I'm interested to know whether T-Max 100 and T-Max 400 roll films are the products with a UV blocker layer?

    I understand T-Max 100 sheet film contains the UV blocker whereas T-Max 400 does not.

    Tom,

    I search of the Kodak publications on T-Max 100 does not turn up either "UV" or "Ultraviolet". I would play it safe and shoot T-Max 400 until you get a chance to contact Kodak and ask them directly.

    Good Luck and have fun with the carbon printing.

    TMX 100 has UV blockers, TMY does not.

    At least in sheet sizes. I don't know about roll film for TMAX 100. A great alternative to TMAX 100 is Fuji Across 100.

    Wow... I didn't know manufacturers were coating films with UV blockers. Shows how outdated my information is. Any other sheet films with UV coatings? I may not need to buy UV filters.

    I'm not aware of any other films that have a UV blocker,
