    ID-11 part b blow up

    I've finally found time to get back into the darkroom and start clearing a back log... I reached for a pack of unmixed ID-11 and have found Part B has ballooned right out and seems close to bursting.

    Will this still be ok to mix? Is it safe to open?

    Well I'm not relying on them, but I'll be mightily angry if the developer underperforms. I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced this, and if they new whether it affects the chemical.

    I could buy a new one, but if someone else has found it doesn't matter I'd rather save the money

    Get in contact with Ilford ASAP - There was a product recall on one batch of ID11 not that long ago.

    If you are desperate for a pack of ID11 (or want D76 as a substitute), ping me with a PM and I'll loan you some (I'm not far from Norwich).

    That's very kind of you - however I'm not in an urgent rush, I can wait for some from silverprint, I just hate waste! I'll conatct Ilford about it though that didn't occur to me.

    It seems that is what you have.

    Hi Simon,

    I called up the people I bought it off (Ag-photo) who immediately called Ilford. Ag-photo returned my call about 30 seconds later saying a replacement was on its way and that they didn't need the old one returned.

    It arrived today - very good service from both companies. Neither were interested in my batch number or proof of purchase. I'm impressed.

    Interestingly, the bloke at Ag-photo said the faulty bacth of was the last to come out of the USA before switching to Germany. I wonder which was the cause?
