              Comments about Kodak Hypo Clearing Agent:

              For over 20 years I have been using the good old Kodak Hypo clearing agent in it's signature yellow package. It is an essential part of my B&W darkroom.

              My only wish is that Kodak would make a 1 liter package like back than.

              Comments about Kodak Hypo Clearing Agent:

              I use Kodak HCA to reduce wash times and insure that there will be no stains when I tone prints. It is easy to mix from powder and adds very little time to print processing. It is not recommended for Pyro processing of film.

                            Good hypo wash. Makes prints more archival. gets the fixer out. clumps up pretty fast when you are mixing, so make sure to continuously stir the stuff when you are mixing

                                    What can you say about Hypo Clearing Agent except that it is a vital part of film processing. Saves H2O and gets rid of all of that fixer. I just wish Kodak still made it in the smaller size.

                                      saves water.
                                      saves time.

                                      i've heard that its not necessary for standard films, but oh well.

                                            It's not just for silver prints and film! You can use HCA to clear platinum, palladium, and Ziatype palladium prints. Two sequential 5-10 minute immersions (depending on the thickness of the paper) in HCA removes the unused iron salts as effectively as the traditional and time-consuming EDTA and citric acid baths, and in much less time than these treatments, so you finish sooner and your paper doesn't come apart as badly. If you're using one of those fine-art stocks that looks more like poster board, you may have to use longer times. HCA is also less toxic.
