Abstract:

A two-solution color processing system has been formulated that is more rapid than black-and-white processing and eliminates the need for ferricyanide bleach, one of the most objectionable pollutants discarded from photographic processing facilities. This all-purpose chemistry can be used to process all of the following color photographic emulsions Kodacolor-X, Ektacolor-S, Vericolor-S, Aerocolor Negative, Ektacolor Internegative, Ektacolor Print Films, Ektacolor RC Paper and several reversal films processed to a negative. The access time as well as the number of processing steps, is markedly reduced when the ECOM chemistry is used. Negatives and transparency prints are processed in 15 the time required with conventional processing and paper processing time is reduced by 12 without degrading the color or stability characteristics of the processed emulsion.
