    aged Cibachrome-A chemicals still in packets

    Howdy,

    Before I dispose of them, I thought I would ask the question. I have a bunch of Cibachrome-A chems that I received a bulk lot recently. While the boxes have deteriorated, the chems are still in sealed foil packets. I am not sure of the vintage, but I would has it a guess that they are +20 years old.

    Do you know whether these would be of any use? Or would it best be to dispose of them?

    Cheers

    Hoffy, I reckon they will be fine. Ken from I can't remember the name of the place which combined with another one now in East Burwood gave me some expired Cibachrome chemicals some years ago, and they were as good as the wet Ilfochrome chems I used to use.

    I'm guessing they were 20 plus years old and they were fine. Use them with confidence.

    How do you "lend" photo paper? You know its not coming back, and if it does it wont be usable when he's done with it.

    Well, yes, you don't really "lend" it, but if I do find some chances are hoffy will use it before I do.
