    Processing Angioplasty film fixing times

    I scored some old angio film on eBay to use for interrogatives for cyanotype/van dyke brown printing. When developed in dilute dektol (1:4) it gives decent tonality so it should work fine, bt my question is, should I treat it like regular film or photo paper when it comes to fixing. Visually it clears very quickly, but I don't know if it needs 60 seconds to fix properly (using Ilford Rapid Fix) or 5 minutes, followed by hypo-clear. the box it came in is taped/marked up, so it doesn't give any clues.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    The general rule is twice the clearing time, and you might go three times if there is a dye that takes longer to clear.

    Thanks David. In that case about a minute seems right.
