fp label ADOX Art Series Fineprint Vario Classic® FB
Neutral black, variable contrast fibre based paper on 300g support.
glossy or matt.

Neutral tone fibre based paper with deep blacks and excellent greyscales.
This paper is coated on the last remaining coating alley which was built especially for coating fibre based papers in the 1950's. It uses the vertical coating dunk-process and runs much slower than modern horizontal speed-coating machines. Thus our paper can really soak up with emulsion making it extremely silver rhich. This also leads to the necessity to develop it at least 2-3 minutes in order to achieve full dmax and greyscales. The developer and fixer are also faster exhausted, please recalculate their capacity.
The paper´s emulsion is free of additional optical brighteners or incorporated developing substances thus making it suitable for alternative printing, two dish development and other processes. No fade out of optical brighteners over longer exposure to light.
ISO paper speed: 100 without filters
Multigrade Filters: Ilford standard
Safelight: dark red only
This paper is very sensitive to safelight fogging. Please make a fogging test before use.

This new ADOX paper features a very good tonal range and an extremely high copy range (contrast range).
Nuance® will not let your highlights go rather it differentiates in the finest “nuances” between white and zone 2. This paper needs to be developed for up to 4 minutes in order to give full highlight and midtone differrentiation due to its extraordinary high silver content. It does not “snap” as much as Museum or Polywarmtone rather it works itself towards the viewer over his rhich tonality in the light and medium dark areas. This makes it extremely suitable for landscapes and portrait work as well as direct copies from a large format negative.
It has a high silver content chlorobromide emulsion.

It develops a superb tonality and slightly greenish colour in Amidol developers whilst achiving a DMAX over 2,2.

ADOX MCC 110 is modelled on the old Agfa MCC FB paper, using a double weight baryta base with a complex emulsion comprising both silver bromide and chlorobromide components to increase the available range of contrast. In a break from the Agfa paper, that used a tinted base the new ADOX version uses a brighter one that is sure to delight some and puzzle others.
A gloss version is available as of March 2010 with a non-gloss version to follow.

Test wedges will be made as soon as a sample is supplied !
