Heico Perma Wash is a highly concentrated neutral liquid that not only saves a tremendous amount of time and wash water, but even more importantly provides archival permanence in both films and papers.

Perma Wash is available in 1 qt., 1 gal., and 5 gallon concentrates. A one quart bottle will make 11 gallons of working solution.

Perma Wash saves more than 90% of normal wash water requirements which is estimated that the operating cost is one cent per 8 x 10" sheet of film or paper processed.

Perma Wash is non-corrosive and is formaldehyde free.

            Comments about Heico Perma Wash (Liquid) for Black & White Film & Paper:

            I've been using Heico Perma Wash for MANY years. I don't think it's necessary for film, or prints on RC paper, which have a short washing time without any wash aide, but it greatly cuts down the otherwise long washing time otherwise needed for prints on fiber-base paper AND helps to ensure that they'll be reasonably archival. My normal work flow is to wash my prints, tone them in KRST and then wash them again. Without Perma Wash, or a similar wash aide, the tie involved would be enormous.

              Use it to clear film (mostly T-Max) and silver gelatin papers (mostly Ilford Multigrade IV FB).
              Have used it a long time and every time I test I find it constant in reducing hypo as advertised.

              Not a thing to complain about.

                Comments about Heico Perma Wash (Liquid) for Black & White Film & Paper:

                I'm a beginner and do all this in my basement, away from running water. Perma Wash, if I'm using it right, allows me to wash the paper I'm developing and get it into a clean water rinse while not having to worry about not having a source of running water. I finish my developing, usually about 5-10 prints, and then take the tray upstairs for a thorough rinse, which, if the product does what it says, only takes a minute. For me, it was a fine investment.
