Thank you PE
I ordered photogelatine at Fotoimpex already, prompt delivery. IŽll phone Mirko about the raw chemicals since their e mail reaction to my question was negativ.
Since Fotoimpex is an important retailer in Germany, IŽll report his reactions. Perhaps it would be better if Mirko posted a reaction himself. Could make an end to the uncertanties.
Hello to you all, Hello PE!
I contacted Mirko at Fotoimpex, Photograde gelatine is straightawy available. The chemicals are not, but he is willing to help bif anything is not obtainable elsewhere. I understand him completely, the handling costs imo would be enormous.
Photograde gelatine is on stock.
Thanks for you help PE,
Could someone who reads French tell me if this page sells Kodak chemistry to a private person? Kodak has branches in most EU countries and the pages all look similar. The reason I ask about France is that there still isn't an identified resource for chemistry there. This doesn't look like it offers raw chemicals, but I'd hate to see processing chemistry (most importantly, Photoflo 200) hold up the works. Thank you.
Looks like the basic Kodak product facts page. But if you can't get Photoflo 200 as a privateer, why not have some shop, company or similar front a group buy? Even a small amount of it (I guess the Photoflo 200 is even stronger than the usual stuff, right?) would last you a long time I suppose.
I have sourced stuff through companies handling pool supplies, fireworks chemicals and assorted other places.
The Page you refer to is contentwise identical to this one (no private sales):

I contacted a couple of firms in Sweden by mail to see if they sell raw chemicals to private persons, i am still compiling a list of european firms. Do you have by chance contacts with these firms.
If they have got a mail address l`ll drop them a line, then we are sure, if they answer, of course.
I just have sent a mail, not this site , but to Kodak France.
Kodak closed the shop per last december.
