Ilford 1918555 overview

  • 1Description

Ilford Multigrade Developer is a liquid concentrate print developer suitable for dish or tray developing of all black and white photographic papers such as resin coated (RC) and traditional fiber based (FB). It is a dimezones/hydroquinone derivative. As opposed to Ilford PQ developer which generates a warm tone, this developer is characterized by a neutral tone. 

Multigrade developer is a rapid working developer usually used at a dilution of 1+9 but for greater development control and economy it can be used at 1+14. Multigrade developer is clean working and features excellent keeping properties. 

It should be noted that Ilford recommends that gloves, eye protection, apron or overall be worn when handling and mixing all chemicals.

Note: PQ Universal is NOT recommended for processing general purpose 35mm and roll film formats or for high temperature or machine processing applications

Usually used at a dilution of 1+9 but for greater development control and economy it can be used at 1+14
Multigrade developer is designed for use at ambient room temperatures: 20°C/68°F

Ilford 1918555 reviews

Multigrade Developer (500ml) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had tried this product sooner !!!! I purchased the Ilford Multigrade Developer as a trial replacement for Kodak Dektol developer. Surprisingly it developes as quickly as the Kodak. Even more surprising the mid-tones where actually more visible. The real kicker was that the Ilford is actually less expensive of the two products. last but not least I haven't found anything that I dislike about the Ilford Developer. I guess I won't be going back to the Kodak. Thanks Ilford

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistent results I use Ilford Multigrade Developer with Ilford Multigrade papers so they should be well matched and they are. Developing is consistent, finishing in about 1 minute at the recommended 20C temperature, and produces the expected contrast toning depending on what filters have been used in the enlarger. I have reused working dilutions over the course of a day with no noticeable decline in quality, but typically keep my use to no more than 20 8x 10 papers in 600ml of working solution during that time. The working solution is strongly alkali and I find I need to watch the pH of my stop solution to ensure its continuing effectiveness (I use a citric acid/sodium citrate buffer) towards the end of a run. For those who have never done it, nothing beats the sight of an image emerging out of the white in a developing tray. It's magic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used this product for years. This developer has been consistently satisfactory for use with both Ilford Multigrade and Ilford Warmtone papers. However, if one prints infrequently (say once every two months), it is best to transfer the unused portion of the developer into a smaller, tightly capped bottle to minimize the amount of air in the container. This will extend the life of the unused developer far longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used it and will continue to use it I have used this developer for years. I know what I need. Connivance and consistency. I am a fine art photographer and demand the best quality products in order to make the finest prints possible. I have done this for more than thirty years and I know what works well. This works well every time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile paper developer I use Multigrade paper developer for boxed paper emulsions (primarily Ilford, but I also have some old Kodak stock) and also Liquid Light paper that I coat myself. It gives beautiful tones with boxed paper and also works well with development controls used with graded emulsions. It has a good long working life and can be used in a variety of dilutions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from B&W Forever Purchased as easy to use alternative to mixing powdered developers; have had great success with Ilford products.
Date published: 2016-03-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful developer easy to mix, store for 24 hours, and use running hundreds of paper negatives through. i have been using this with my students and it has been consistent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the Best Paper Developer Everything about this paper developer works perfectly for black and white using RC papers. Nothing is foolproof but this is the closest thing to it.
