    warm tone developer comprising of hydroquinone and sodium hydroxide

    hi all,

    i vaguely remember reading this formula somewhere, perhaps in an agfa book - it was 12gr hydroquinone/litre as the sole developing agent, sodium hydroxide and preservative (perhaps some bromide). if anyone could furnish the complete formula i'll be very grateful.

    This is usually a lithographic style high contrast film developer. The bromide was quite high as well.

    I use a Kodak variant of the similar formula, called D-85 when I want no grays whan processing graphic arts type lithographic film. There are also two parters that keep the hydroxide as a separate solution.

    I normally steer clear of hydroxide solutions when they are in trays. Too easy to get an alkili burn this way, let alone the risk of pulling the emulsion right off the print.
    my real name, imagine that.
