Edwal LFN Wetting Agent is a low foam, liquid wetting agent. Just two drops of super-low-foaming, non-ionic LFN in a pint of developer will prevent air bubbles and floating dust particles from causing pinholes. Just two drops per pint of water for use as a film rinse will prevent water spots. Hanging film will drain evenly and completely.

An LFN final rinse solution for RC (resin coated) prints which are to be air dried by hanging will promote even drying and cut drying time by about half. LFN foams much less than other wetting agents so bubbles disappear in seconds.

      I always use this with distilled water before I put my reels in a Kindermann Rapid Dryer. I've never had a problem with water spots when using this wetting agent.

      Comments about Edwal LFN Wetting Agent for Black & White Film & Paper (3/4 oz):

      I definitely noticed a reduction in the number of water spots on my negatives. I do still get the occasional water spot, though. They might be caused by using un-distilled tap water. Something to be aware of. Will definitely keep using it, though!

                  Lasts a looong time. 2 drops per tank. Great wetting agent. No more water spots. I noticed a performance improvement with slighly warmer (warmer than developer temp, 72F water.

                        I have developed over 150 rolls of film on the first bottle and it still goes on doing what it says one drop at a time.

                        My final rinse is in distilled water for 80 seconds and then I add one drop to the final rinse(only one drop more is not better). Shake for only 20 seconds, pour out final rinse water, remove film, shake off excess water and hang to dry. No need to sqeegee film it drys perfectly without spots. Dust appears not to want to stick.

                            I use this as with my final wash. I fill my development tank with distilled water, then add a few drops on LFN, agitate for two minutes, take out the film and hang to dry. The negatives always come out great and smooth and have no spots.
