Available in Glossy and Finegrain (textured semi-matte) surfaces
Process Type Black and white chemistry
Base Type Fiber based
Tone Cool rich blacks, crisp bright whites and exceptional mid-tone detail
Weight Double weight, The paper is 240 g/m2 coated on the front side with 36g/m2 of baryta giving a base weight of approximately 276 g/m2, and a thickness of approximately 260 µm
Contrast Variable, Contrast as a range approximately equivalent to grades 00 to 5 is achievable from the Fineprint range by means of contrast filters used in the enlarger. Proprietary filter sets such as Ilford Multigrade or Kodak Polymax are suitable.
Surface Finish Glossy, The traditional unglazed glossy surface is particularly suited to portrait, landscape and exhibition work. A very high gloss can be achieved by standard glazing techniques.
Safelight Compatibility Fineprint range papers have an orthochromatic emulsion, that requires a dark orange/brown or red safelight to be used. Box/lantern type safelights using glass filters should only be used with a 15 W bulb or less and should be positioned at least 1 meter from the paper. Filters which are suitable for use with VC Select are: Kodak OC or 1A, and Ilford 902

            I am in college and taking photography classes. We started out with RC and now we're using this FB paper to make prints. Usually, most FB paper is better than RC because there are way more details to pull out from the negative that RC paper can't get. It's true, you can get some amazingly detailed prints with FB. Kentmere continues to be the brand that I choose. The only thing that makes FB paper difficult to use is the curling of the edges that occurs with any FB paper.

                I use this product for my college photography class. Paper can be expensive and this a great price for a nice paper! I haven't done very much printing with it yet, but so far I like it! It has a nice gloss and the size gives you more variety in printing. You are not as restricted in image size with this size of. paper. It seems to develop consistently. So far I am very happy with this product [...] I will be doing sepia toning with this paper in a few weeks.

                      I think that this Kentmere paper is probably the best deal on fiber paper around. I like its slightly cooler tones and crisp whites. I had more trouble pressing it than I've had with other FB papers, but I think that it is a pretty good paper considering the price.

                        I use this paper for my photography class to print my best images. The tonality of the print is excellent. However, it takes longer to develop, fix, and wash.

                            I find deep blacks and whites that glow in this paper. I always tone the paper with selenium diluted 1:20 for ten minutes. I would match its resultant image against any other paper.
