A powder, print developer for brownish-black up to cold clack picture tones at a smooth gradation. Comes with 50ml stabilizer solution to prepare 1 litre of stock or 6-10 litres of working solution. Free of hydroquinone & caustic alkalies with a reduced sulphite amount.
Separol developers are suitable for all photographic papers available. By the use of Separol NE, Soft and HE, the picture tone can be varied by adding one of the supplied ñPicture tone stabilizers within the limits of the used paper.
Picture tones vary between brownish-black up to neutral-black when the stabilizer is not been added. e would suggest adding at least half of the stabilizer, the best results on cold tones can be obtained when the whole amount of 50ml is used.
Two tray development or fine adjustment through combining of NE, WA, HE with Soft is possible.
At two tray development, pre-developing should take place in NE, HE or WA until the average tones
are satisfying, followed by highlights, appearing then in the second tray (Soft 1+5 up to 1+8) .
Dilution: The stock has to be diluted 1+5 with water (up to +9 when used as second developer following NE,
HE, WA), meaning by separate preparation of developer and alkali 1+1+10 (up to +18).
The working solution keeps well for several weeks.
