The paper I have says pearl on the box and its been a few years since I have ran this stock so I cannot comment, Simon at Ilford would have a better answer on its surface.
I have no idea about your first question.

I'd be tentatively interested in getting some of that paper, maybe to help defer some of your expense danube?
By some I mean no more than an amount roughly equivalent to a box of 25 8x10's, but I realize it's in rolls and that certainly does add some hassle, and my interest doesn't represent a substantial proportion of the roll.
IDK... there are a couple things that would be interesting to test this paper for. Namely it's suitability for carbro, and then generally how it responds to color negatives. One can imagine where I'm going with this....

...and on this sad day for the photo industry, many thanks to you and Ilford for making what Kodak no longer does and keeping our hobbies and professions alive!
Bob: Thanks, pearl would work. I think pearl is what I am using now. How much would you part with a roll for, and what does it weigh?
Holmburgers: I'm going to have to figure out how to slice it up myself into 8x10s or smaller without losing fingers or limbs, so no problem cutting some down, but I might ask you to send me some surplus 8x10 print paper boxes if you have.
Thanks for the consideration Dan, keep me updated if you end up going that route.
It'll be interesting to see what Simon says, but any silver-halide material should exhibit some kind of printing out effect.
