Kodak E-6 Bleach Starter for Color Slide Film - Makes 25 Gallons

B&H # KOE6BS.5G MFR # 1779792
No Longer Available

Kodak Professional Chemicals, Process E-6, provide consistent, high-quality results with a variety of processing methods and equipment.

Kodak E-6 Bleach Starter converts the metallic silver image back to silver halide; the silver halide is later removed in the fixer.

During bleaching, iron III is reduced to iron II. Iron II must be converted back to iron III by aeration so that satisfactory bleaching can continue.

Kodak E-6 Professional chemicals are ideal for processing Kodak Ektachrome, Kodak Professional Ektachrome, and Kodak Elite Chrome Films, as well as other E-6 process films produced by other manufactures.

Process E-6 requires each of the following chemicals:

  • first developer,
  • reversal bath,
  • color developer,
  • pre-bleach,
  • bleach,
  • fixer, and
  • final rinse

The chemicals are supplied as liquid concentrates for ease of handling and mixing. Kodak Professional Chemicals, Process E-6AR, are formulated for replenishment systems with in-line dilution.

The 25 gallon size is appropriate for for rack-and-tank, continuous, and roller-transport processors.

For in-line dilution replenishment systems, use the chemicals that contain the E-6AR (automatic replenishment) designation. Concentrates are generally packaged in 5-gallon flexible containers.

To prepare first developer, color developer, and bleach working solutions, add the appropriate starter according to the mixing instructions on the package.
