    Eco-Pro Chemicals...

    Does anyone have any experience with Eco-Pro chemicals? I didn't know 'green' chemistry existed until I received the Freestyle catalog. I'd like to be as 'green' as I can, and wondered how these performed.

    I have used them. I am not extreamly experienced with the darkroom, have only had mine for maybe a year or so. A few months ago I bought the Eco-Pro and am loving it.

    We've used the print developer in our college darkroom for a couple years and have been satisfied with the results. It works fine at 1+9 but seems to oxidize and darken more rapidly than previously used developers such as Ilford Universal, Dektol, or Sprint.

    Oxidizes and darkens quicker than Dektol? The stuff must be dead out of the bottle.

    I use the clearfix neutral(formerly Silvergrain) for my prints. Good shelf life and fairly large capacity for prints and best of all, no smell. I give the fix two thumbs up. If I weren't so firmly attached to my other chems, I would probably use the developers and stop.

    Their fixer is ammonium thiosulfate, stop is citric acid, no "greener" than Ilford's products, except the name.

    I'm using their odorless stop bath and it's not bad. However, it not like Kodak's indicator stop bath where it changes color when it's exhausted.

    When I state "firmly attached" , read large supply on hand.
