Ilford Multigrade Resin Coated Pearl Paper

Ilford Multigrade Resin Coated Pearl is a high-quality black and white darkroom paper. This is a paper designed for printing in a traditional black and white darkroom.

Originally released in 1940, Ilford’s Multigrade paper has evolved over the years and become the go-to choice when it comes to resin coated paper. It’s perfect for beginners and professionals alike.

This particular paper comes in the popular pearl finish. Giving it a subtle pearlescent surface that helps your images look sharp and clear with some added depth. It also has a bright white base colour and will give a neutral image tone to your images.

Ilford Multigrade is a variable contrast paper, which means that it is possible to get the full range of contrast from your negatives. Simply use in conjunction with a multigrade enlarger and you can print from grade 00 through to 5. If used without any filters on your enlarger, it equates to approximately grade 2 or 3.

Ilford Multigrade Resin Coated Pearl is available in a range of sizes from 5×7, to 8×10 and up to 20×24. We can also order it in even larger roll sizes if you need.
