Dear Zsas,

Whilst its true in Galerie FB we have not made Matte for years we do make Glossy grade 2 and Glossy grade 3 and in RC ILFOSPEED we make Glossy and Pearl ( granted its not a matte ) in grades 1 to 4.

Dear Ron:

Coating FB : Baryta base is still the same....dusty and chaff generating, as we coat every substrate on one machine ( M14 ) we obviously have a full pre-clean, but since the introduction of on-web ultra sonic cleaners we actually have virtually no coating loss due to dust, just the usual base imperfections....and the odd join! But you are absolutely correct, the clean up is the longest of all change overs.
