According to Ilford's instructions the recommendation remains the same regarding the use of a non-hardening rapid fixer so I would imagine the emulsion and surface are as robust as MGIV. This has been my experience so far. Squeegeeing after the wash same as I always did with MGIV and I haven't seen any damage or scratching etc. Seems just as easy to handle.

On to some selenium toning...
