Adox Scala is a black-and-white slide film, based on the original and legendary Agfa Scala which was discontinued years ago but is now revived by Adox. Scala's emulsion has been designed to be reversal processed so it is not a black-and-white negative film which can be reversal processed like Adox CMS 20 II.
Adox Scala is identical to the original, it features the authentic APX film emulsion, clear triacetate base and features an increased silver content (in comparison to a more standard B&W negative film) yielding a DMAX of 3,6 and higher (depending on the reversal process used). Optimal exposure shall be set at ISO 160 which is also the nominal sensitivity of the film and thus a bit lower than the original Scala. Scala 160 has an anti-halation layer between the emulsion and the film base for optimal sharpness and detail contrast.
The film can be developed with the Adox Scala Processing Kit, Foma R100 Kit or Bellini B&W Rev kit.
