Kodak Xtol Film Developer 5L

Kodak Xtol is a two-part powder, fine grain, black and white film developer. Ideal for use with a wide range of black and white films. Highly versatile, it works well with normally exposed, pushed, or pulled films. Kodak Xtol is known for its especially fine grain and high sharpness.

Another benefit, Kodak Xtol is a powder developer, making it light and easy to travel with.

If you use this as a stock solution there is no need to mix up developer each time. Simply prepare the stock, and reuse the developer until exhausted. If you decide to use it one-shot diluted 1+1, simply discard after use. Using it diluted 1+1 will provide enhanced sharpness and shadow detail, with slightly more grain.

It is convenient to mix and has excellent keeping properties. This pack makes 5 litres of Kodak Xtol Film Developer stock solution. Always make up the developer stock solution to the volume stated on the pack. Do not attempt to prepare smaller quantities by using fractional parts of powder.

How To Use

As it is a powder, you dilute it to make a stock solution first. To prepare Kodak Xtol 5L stock, dissolve the contents of part A in 4 litres of water at room temperature. Stir until the powder has dissolved. Then continue to stir, while gradually adding the contents of Part B. Add 1 litre of water to make up 5 litres and stir. Allow this to cool to room temperature, then the developer is then ready to use. Store in a tightly capped bottle until needed for use.

Xtol 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. Prepare a working solution from the stock solution directly before it is needed. Always make sure you mix together thoroughly before use.
