    Adding Anti-Halation Dye to Film

    I was intersted if anybody hear knew the type of dye is suitable for anti-halation on the back of film to be processed c-41 or black and white? I am going to be doing some testing applying dye to the back of film without anti-halation but would like it to be solluable in the first step.

    Any knowledge or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

    PE,

    He asks for c41 and bw. I think he wants to fantasize to improve ordinary film.

    But yes ideally I would like to apply it to either c-41, panchromatic black and white film or home made glass plates. The key is using a dye that would not be harful to the c-41 process. The mothod of application would obviously need to be worked out too of corse.

    Your best bet would be inactivated carbon black in gelatin coated as desired and then removed before processing. This is known as Rem Jet or Removable Jet Black!
