    I can't speak for Kallitypes, but as said this is similar to VB. I use a 2% sodium thiosuphate solution with about 10ml of ammonia (8 molar) in 5 litres of solution. This seems to work fine with 2 minutes fixation.

    I use the same toner formula for lith and standard prints. I make up 200ml at a time and use just enough in a flat bottom tray to cover the print (surprisingly little). I then save the used toner in a separate bottle. It has a pretty good capacity. When it stops working (a few prints), I discard it and start with new.

    Hi all,

    BTW, if probable, avoid large margins with brush marks around the image, you'll save toner; I use a mask to put ~3mm (1/8") wide regular borders around the image if it's going to be toned... Masking some coated parts also lets you check for good clearing / processing. The whites should be perfect in the coated but masked parts of the print, if not, your processing is flawed and/or the paper isn't suitable to the process - with or w/o any other pretreatment...

    Regards,
    Loris.

    Hi padraigm, I use 1 - 1.5" wide ribbons cut from scrap pieces of fully exposed offset (lith) film (log 4.0 - 5.0 density) or I put a mask around the image in case of digital negatives.

    Regards,
    Loris.
