For use in tank, take 162 mililiters each of Solution A, B and C and add water to make 3.78 liters. Developing time about 10–15 minutes at 18.5°C.

For tray use, dilute 1:1:1:7 and develop about 6 minutes at 18.5°C.

As a rule, contrast and density may be increased by decreasing the recommended amount of water to dilute the stock solution by 50%–66%. Softer negatives can be obtained by using 50%–100% more water than is specified for normal results.
