  • 1Description

Ilford Ilfotol is a non-ionic wetting agent used as a final rinse before drying films.

Ilfotol can be used in all manual and machine processes to aid rapid, even drying and so greatly reduce the risk of drying marks being formed.

Ilfotol can also be used as a final rinse before drying fibre based prints, again it promotes rapid, even drying. Additionally it can be used to clean glass and plastic lenses and filters and as an anti-static treatment.

Ilfotol Wetting Agent (Liquid) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from a very important step... I process between 8 and 10 rolls of film per month, and I have been doing so for about five years...and in all that time I have not once had my negatives blemished with water spots. After a five minute wash (Paterson tank), I pour off an inch or so of water, drop in a tiny amount of Ilfotol, then grasp the roll and give it a few vigorous shakes (until it suds). I then take out the plastic roll, and sharply shake off excess water (50 shakes). Finally I unroll the film, and hang it to air dry. Again, never a water-blemished negative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! This stuff rocks. I use this after I've rinsed the film -- add the recommended amount to your last tankful of water in the film tank. I no longer use any kind of squeegee or sponge on my film -- just rinse with Ilfotol and let it drip dry. My negatives dry out clean with no water spotting. One bottle lasts forever because you only use a few drops with each roll of film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wet Records (LPs) Having some developing experience in my younger days I was aware of surfactants and how they make water wetter. I purchased this product for use in making record cleaning solution (D3-D4 Discwasher)to clean my LPs before play. 800ml of distilled water, 200ml of 95.5% Ispropal alcohol and 5ml Ilfotol is the recipe. At that rate this bottle will last me a long, long time. Shipped fast for a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I use the wetting agent for both paper and film. I use to use Kodak photo flow but have switched. I was getting water marks left with Photo flow and that no longer happens

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am very impressed with this product. I actually use this product in the cleaning of my expansive vinyl record collection. It is used with several other items into a fine and effective record cleaning solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT WETTING AGENT It really works perfect. I live in a location with a very high humidity and it makes more difficult the drying process. With this product I have the solution. With only a few drops it works perfectly. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ilfotol Wetting Agent (Liquid) by Ilford I used to use this product as a wetting agent in my darkroom and it worked really well. I now combine a small cap full with isopropyl alcohol and distilled water and use it to clean my vinyl record collection. Really works well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Streak-less negatives! I use it to eliminate streaks on my film while they are drying. Just like the stuff for no streaks in a dishwasher, this does the same, great job!
