Product Description

Formulary's 130 Paper Developer is a superb paper developer that produces a full scale of rich blacks. The developer has an excellent shelf life, high capacity and is very suitable for batch processing. The prints obtained with F130 are surpassed only by the Amidol Developers, however F130 is much more pleasant to work with. We feel F130 is one of the best developers ever formulated. The chemicals in Formulary 130 make stock solutions which are diluted 1:1 with water to make the working solution. The stock solution is stable up to 6 months. A capacity of about 50 8x10" prints can be expected per 1 liter of working solution.

  1. My favorite developer for gelatin silver printing! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Mar 2021

    Ansco 130 is my favorite developer for both contact and projection printing on papers like Ilford VC Warmtone fiber base paper. Beautiful tonality and great operation of values with a long lasting tray life. This is a great kit, easy to mix and economical. If you have not tried this paper developer, you will be impressed with the quality of images it is capable of!

  3. My favourite print developer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd May 2020

    There are plenty of good print developers around, and you will always get a good result with any of them. But when you nail it, when the result is a feeling in your gut, not just a measurement on a densitometer, it's Ansco 130 1:1.

    It has maybe a 2-5% difference from your typical developers, and I haven't put my finger on it, but it makes me happy.

    You might notice a very subtle tone (as in colour) shift from your usual developer, depending on the paper. On MGIV RC I have the faintest reddishness. On FB paper it's business as usual.

  4. Works great on variety of papers 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2020

    I have had my stock for just over a year now and it is still going strong. I use it either 1:1 or 1:2. I have tried it with Ilford MGFB Classic, Ilford warmtone FB, and with Bergger papers. With Berger VC fiber it is a little colder and bluer than the Ilford papers. Working solution in an open tray can be used for 2-3 days in a row, but after about day 4 it starts to darken and will stain the paper. In a full brown bottle I have kept diluted 1:2 for up to 3 months with no problems. I am an infrequent printer and have found the shelf life adequate for this product.
