Fibre Based Print Washing

2 products
FB paper is the traditional black and white paper which has no plastic coating. It is prized as the ultimate photographic paper, but, the lack of plastic coating means processing chemicals can penetrate the paper and therefore the prints must be given a very thorough wash in order to remove all traces. Failing this the prints will stain or even completely degrade over time. But if washed properly they become prints with the ultimate archival track record of any photographic material.

We offer a range of superb FB print washers. The prints are placed in slots and water gently flows across all surfaces. If the prints are first put through a Hypo Clearing Agent bath, after a quick rinse following fixing, wash time should be 20-30 minutes at 20 degrees. Longer if the water is colder.
