FORMULARY 102 PAPER DEVELOPER is a glycin-based paper developer that is similar to Edwal 102. Prints developed in Formulary 102 have neutral cold tones with a smooth gradation. The developer produces good blacks with normal to slightly soft contrast. The prints are softer than those obtained using Formulary 130.
Formulary 102 does not contain metol, therefore this developer is suitable for photographers with a sensitivity to metol.
The stock solution has a shelf life of 3 to 4 months and is diluted 1:3 to make the working solution. The working solution has high capacity, but unfortunately, is short-lived.
