This link has a tech sheet -- -- but my
memory is that they include better tech specs with the film.

I've used this as (pinhole) camera negative, and for making transparent
positives for photogravure. Haven't tried making enlarged negatives
with it.

I start with Dektol at a dilution of 1:9, and have ended up using
a range of between 1:7 and 1:12. Enlarger exposure is typically
30-120 seconds at f8. Pinhole camera exposure is all over the map.

I do a 60 second presoak, because there is an orange anti-halation
coating that needs to come off, then try to get my development to
be around 90-120 seconds.

This all under a red safelight.
