    The Arista E6 kit I used within the last year used a chemical re-exposure step
    blix came in 3 parts/bottles

    it worked well for me and they just discontinued the Kodak E6 5L Single Use Kits

    I haven't teated archival standard but I did but a tape a chrome on my window that receives direct afternoon sun.

    It's been there for almost a year and although Im sure there is some fading it's not apparent ? ? ?

    I've been using the Kodak E6 kit in a Jobo Autolab 1000 for 5 years now with splendid results. Worth the effort of mixing 7 chemicals. The 7th is the final rinse.

If the blix is inadequate, then the slides will suffer from a varying degree of retained silver, primarily in highlight areas (MQ silver is harder to blix IIRC) and this will give muddy highlights.
    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but a search produced it. I'm considering the Arista E6 kit. I also have the Unicolor C-41 kit. It comes with stabilizer, so would that be useful as a fourth step with E-6 films? Or can one make stabilizer if one has Photoflo 2000 and access to formalin?

    The E6 stabilzer must contain Formalin in it, or the Formalin must be provided in a pre-bleach step. If you omit this chemical, the film is prone to rapid fading.

    What is the concentration of formaldehyde in stabilizer? If it's just diluted Photoflow 2000 plus formaldehyde, I can make it. TIA.

    There have been several formulas, all pretty close and they did vary between C41 and E6 processes.

    Here is the range:

    Mix Photo Flo 200 as directed.

    To 1 L of this add between 3 and 10 ml of Formalin, (37% Formaldehyde in water).

    This spans all versions of Formalin Stabilizers used that I know of.

    Can I use aquarium grade formalin (37% sol) for this and do I have to use Photoflo or can I use Edwal LFN?

    I have no idea. Sorry. I would guess so, but it depends on whether there are other ingredients present.

    Am I correct that this means 10 ml of formalin (which is 37% formaldehyde)?
