Fotokemikas IR Film (developed by Fotokemika engineers in the 90ies) with 820 nm and formerly distributed by Maco will probably be back in production at Fotokemika Novaīs in about 2-3 months and will be available from ADOX in Europe and from Freestyle in the US.
Possibly also from Maco if they, once more, happen to change their mind, which I would very much welcome.
As far as our plans about revitalising "products which are similar in specs like products which used to be former Agfa products" are concerned, we are focussing on emulsioning and contract coating for the first years. The research coating lines are for reasearch only with low productivity and they are used for just this purpose right now, running in loops of 2 Meters. After all we work together with emulsionists who know what to do to recreate emulsions which are of a kind to make up products with very, very similar specs to what used to be known as MCC or APX. Thatīs what we aim for.
If you are in doubt: Go and buy Agfa leftover stocks from Maco right now as long as supplies last. Then you have something 100% original, with an orange box and with the original logo on.
We are here for the time after that, wonīt be able to put products out any time soon but loveīd to keep products with similar specs in commerce for many years to come.
