Hi all.

I've almost run out of Kodalith Super Rt and would like to do some printing this week. The only lith developer that is readily available is Moersch Special Edition Master Set and the Special Edition 15 Polychrome Kit. I'll be printing with Forte PWT 15, 17. Has anyone used these kits? What are your thoughts on the results? Did you use the additional additives, Lith D and Lith E? What was the capacity like, it's expensive to by but if you get a lot of working solution developer it can be worth the extra cost.

Thank you in advance.

Michael

I have used them. The results are much more controllable than using the RT. Very nice colors available with the additives and the solution lasted fairly well.

It is pricey, I like the Maco Lith as well. I find it renders a little higher contrast with the same exposure time.

Of course, as with anything, one would need to do ones own testing.

Hi Mike
What dilution were you mixing the RT at?
I have a large job inhouse for lith printing, if I can get away with it I will give you a Bag of A and B.

No Moersch for now.

Thanks Robert and Bob.

I was a little premature in asking about Moersch developers. Turns out the local retailer are backordered a month. Guess Moersch will have to wait. So I phoned in an order for Kodak RT to be delivered by mail in a week or two. Bob if you could spare a bag I’ll replace it when my order is delivered.


Bob, I’ve mostly been using 1 to 6 but lately trying 1 to 12. I like the highlights at 1 to 12. Takes a loonnnggggg time to come up though.

Dilution

Bob

Sorry I made a mistake posting the dilution. It should be 1+1+6 and 1+1+12.
