    Welcome,

    Check out Kodak's tech pubs for a start.

    Use the search function here for RA4 too.

    You can process 2 ways:

    I use Kodak RA RT developer replenisher so what I say is for that.

    Tray 68F / 20 C

    Develop 2'
    Blix 2 - 4 '
    Wash 4' - 10' at up to 25 or 30 C.
    Dry

    Drum 38 C / 100 F

    Prewet 30"
    Develop 1'
    Stop 30" (1 - 2% acetic acid)
    Blix 1.5 - 2'
    Wash 2 - 5'

    If you use developer (or replenisher + starter) you can only really get good results at 100F and you must use the EK recommendations for time.

    Have fun.

    I'll add mine for drums at 20-22C, or room temp. Kodak RA/RT chemistry no starter mixed with the developer.


    Beseler 8x10 drum 70 ml of each


    Prewash 30 sec
    dev 2 min
    stop 2% acetic acid 30 sec
    rinse 30 sec
    blix 2 min , usually 2.5 as I am in no rush at that point.
    Wash 5- 30 min, most of it just sitting in a water tray.
