Ilford Perceptol Film Developer is a fine grain, black and white film developer.

The main reason to use Perceptol is for exceptionally sharp negatives. You will get greater definition and detail than most popular fine grain developers. So, if you want extra fine grain and sharpness this developer is for you.

Perceptol will get the most out of the superb grain structure of medium and slow speed films. Ideal films to use with this developer are Ilford Delta 100, Ilford FP4 Plus, and Ilford PAN F Plus. Also worth a try with some of the faster films for significantly finer grain.

How To Use

As it is a powder, you dilute it to make a stock solution first. To prepare Ilford Perceptol stock, dissolve the contents of part A in 750ml of warm water at about 40ºC. Stir until the powder has dissolved. Then continue to stir, while gradually adding the contents of Part B. Keep stirring until no more powder dissolves. Add 250ml cold water to make up 1 litre and stir. Allow this to cool to room temperature, then the developer is then ready to use.

Ilford Perceptol can either be used as a stock solution, or it can be diluted further with water for one-shot processing. You can dilute 1+1. That means one part stock solution to one part water. Or you can dilute 1+3. So that is one part stock solution to three parts water. Prepare these working solutions from the stock solution directly before they are needed. Always make sure you mix together thoroughly before use.
