    I am not sure if this is similar to the paper that Harman makes for the Ilford direct positive paper or not (which is, as I understand it, temporarily suspended from production). Be cool to make black and white prints from chromes.

    It's on a polyester base but as far as I can make out that's the only similarity to Ilfochrome.

    Ilford Imaging was the manufacturer of the IlfordPhoto direct-positive paper emulsion. First as custom emulsion production for a german client, later the emulsion was acquired by IlfordPhoto for their own direct-positive papers.

    This coating on PET base, seemingly done by Ilford Imaging is new to me. Seemingly a custom coating for Ars-Imago.

    Hi David

    Mr cad said it was on Melinex and that it was made in the ilfochrome factory
    it might be harmen direct positive as that was also made there
    I was wondering if it was an old product for prints from b/w chromes thats just turned up in the back of the storeroom long forgotten about
    anybody remember such a product ?

    No, not according to my archive. But maybe someone else knows better.

    (I admit though that an old stock makes more sense than a custom production, especially with IlfordPhoto stating to be in need of that emulsion.)

    I know them personally so if anyone would like specific information I can ask. It's on a Melinex base, commissioned and created by Imago (I am not entirely sure who they collaborated with on this), made in Switzerland, packaged in Germany and distributed through Imago. Standard BW chemicals are used to develop these papers.

    But WHEN was it made? Ilford Imaging closed down the Marly plant a month or two ago. Or did they?

    Actually they stopped their halide business in september last year. The respective employees had been made redundant back then.

    These positive papers were designed, commissioned and financed by Imago 1:1, made and coated by Ilford in Switzerland, cut and packaged by Maco.
