    Effect on Ilford Photo /Harman

    see here for the effect in the Direct Positive Paper:

    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum172/...y-limited.html

    (I did not hint at this issue before because I assumed that Ilford Photo/Harman did take over the production of that Emulsion meanwhile. Especially as they stated not to be affected by the demise of Ilford Imaging at all.)

    The majority of debitors are unpaid employees. It is not clear whether they will be satisfied.
    The other debitors, social service and suppliers are believed to lack any satisfaction as they are ranked 2nd and 3rd after the employees.
    Patents are believed major assests.

    Concerning halide materials lately Ilford Photo served more or less the consumer market, Ilford Imaging the commercial market, without offering similar products. Concerning ink-jet papers both manufacturers offered similar materials but under different brands: Harman and Ilford.

    So I do not see that issue of mixing up products.
    (That does not take away that once in a hurry I approached the wrong booth at Photokina....)

    Furthermore, the swiss stock will be sold out soon.

    The problem will start if anyone buys the right of the Ilford brand. (Maybe the contract between Harman and Ilford Imaging had some chapter protecting Harman in case of transfer of brand rights.) But I would not be surprised by another case of AgfaPhoto.

    As a courtesy to customers, they should publish the formulas for Ilfochrome processing solutions!

    I know what is in the bleach, yes. I don't know the exact proportions. I also know less suitable substitute chemicals that require much more tinkering to balance the curve shape.

    However, to answer AgX, I think any responsible person formerly or currently with an insolvent company has a moral responsibility to help out floundering former customers who need to use up their existing (and expensive) stocks of paper without having their investment spoil on them!!!1
