    I've come into possession of a lot of color chemistry.

    Like a pallet full of stuff. It's all chemicals, no paper or anything. It's all still sealed in boxes and it shows that it was shipped between '03 and '05. Is it possible that it's still good (it was stored in an air conditioned building)? And do you think there are people who would use it?

    Don't we all.
    The fixer and bleach might be okay but can you examine the bottles at all for sediment or discoloration?

    It's mostly Kodak stuff. I only bought the stuff because I thought "I bet some APUGers could use this." The only problem is that it would be a pain to ship. It could be done, but I'm hoping someone in Florida ñeeds it. I'll have to check tomorrow what everything is and open the boxes to check for discoloration and sediment. I'm storing it where I don't live so I can't get to it tonight. I've attached some pictures I took earlier.

    Sorry the pictures are sideways. They looked fine on my phone but my phone has been acting up lately.

    From what I can see these are mostly concentrates for minilabs.
    The F cartridges are C41 and the P are RA4.

    Yeah they all say for industrial /commercial use. Is this type of thing useful to people still? I called a couple smaller labs, but they (understandably) declined.

    You can tell by the colour of the chemistry. A light 'straw' colour is good (for the developer part, such as part C for flexicolor). I've used very out of date Kodak concentrates after testing and confirming they were still good. Give it a test run and all good (you don't mix it up all at once, but in smaller amounts as needed).

    Black is no good.

    Minilab chemistry works fine in a hand tank.




    Mixing info may be in here depending on what packaging - http://www.kodak.com/global/en/profe...is49/cis49.pdf

    If it's still active, yea you can use those concentrates in small quantities.
    It just gets a bit rougher to figure out ratios to mix say a litre at a time.

    I think there is some info on a thread somewhere around here.

    That's good to know. Athiril's post above seems to have a pretty useful PDF. I've never tried C41 processing, but if I have the chemicals, I might have to start.
