Ilford PQ Universal Developer 5L

Ilford PQ Universal Developer 5L is a liquid concentrate developer for both paper and film. Suitable to use with any black and white photographic paper. You can expect it to produce a slightly warm tone print compared to other developers.

PQ Universal is also suitable to develop technical films. This is the case for both Ilford and other brands of technical film. Dish and tray development is also possible with some general purpose sheet films. A particularly good option when you need a fast, high contrast developer. Keep in mind that Ilford would not recommend this developer if a high degree of enlargement is what you are after.

PQ Universal is a dimezones/hydroquinone based developer. It is also available in 1L and 500ml bottles.

How To Use

As it is a concentrate, you dilute it to make a working solution. To prepare PQ Universal, dilute 1+9. That means one part developer to nine parts water. The dilution is the same for both paper and film processing. Make sure you mix together thoroughly before use.
