    Cibachrome/Ilfochrome Classic paper

    A friend of mine recently gave me some cibachrome/ilfochrome paper & chemicals

    ....the chemicals were old so I disposed of them - but what to do with the paper?

    the paper is ilfochrome classic medium contrast 8x10 25 sheets (expired 2008 but stored in refrigerator)


    If there's anyone out there dying to get their hands on some ilfochrome paper this is your lucky day

    Not to be a party pooper, just so nobody gets their hopes too high. Its probably no good anymore. IME it doesn't keep that well for 8 years (assuming mfg in 2006) even when frozen.
    Nice work. You have a very talented computer.

    Thanks, I'll test a sheet, if nothing else I think I can use it for alternative processes if it's no good for cibi or B&W transparency. Or something.

    It is NG for most anything being just an inert black sheet of paper until properly processed.

    It is good for experimentation in an effort to find a good substitute process that will work, and that hinges on the bleach solution. I've considered doing these experiments for a while, but I've had no paper. And, well, not much time. I would consider giving aid to someone in an effort to come up with a viable process.

    However, that keeping problem is a real bear to get around!

    PE are you saying it's the chemical process that needs a "work around"? I always thought it was the paper that was the real problem? Or an I misunderstanding?

    Both. The paper doesn't last, and nobody is making it. And the bleach has never been satisfactorily home brewed.
    Nice work. You have a very talented computer.
