    I can't give you a number but I would think a red and a orange sandwiched together would be good and give you ample protection. Ruby Lith is its own product. It used to be used in graphic arts before computer paste up became the way to do it. You might check Rocso's web site and see where the cut off is on the spectrum. Most paper sites will have that info also. Here is an example http://www.ilfordphoto.com/Webfiles/...2015431815.pdf top right hand corner.

    I just happened to have some real ruby lith that I got for another project and it was very cheap (like close out prices). Check for it in a drafting store or an art supply store.

    Thanks Lee, I used Ruby lith when doing strip up and layouts for printing a long time ago. I'm going to make some new filters for my Thomas.

    Curt,

    I did not strip off the clear part of the Ruby Lith I just cut it to size and used it that way. It is a lot less delicate that way.

    Lee, sounds good to me and easier to use that way. I love unique cost saving alternatives don't you?
