    What i really wanted to ask was, in Archival washing of prints which are to be toned in eithe selenium or indirect sepia (FB in particular) is there any point using an HCA with an Alkaline fix like tf3 or tf4?[/QUOTE]


    Leon,
    no you don't have to use an hca with an alkaline fixer,in fact an alkaline fixer is better if you want to selenium tone your prints as this toner prefers an alkaline enviroment. I would recomend using a hca after selenium toning as selenium toner has a small amount of hypo in it.
    hope this helps

    Would Agfa qualify as "large brand"? If so, their FX-Universal Fixer (pH=about 7.5 when diluted for B+W film and paper) is reasonably priced and very good. I use it for everything.

    And, since it is made primarily for colour work, is probably going to stay on the market even if Agfa get rid of their B+W products.
