Kodak XTOL is a two-part powder film developer for processing Kodak and other manufacturers’ normally exposed, pushed, or pulled black-and-white films. XTOL is an ascorbic acid-based film developer which yields a very high image quality at full emulsion speed and a very fine grain (dilution 1:1) even with classic b&w film emulsions like Ilford HP5 Plus.
It consists out of two parts which must be mixed together with water. When mixing you slowly add Part A to water and stir it until its completely dissolved. The solution will then be somewhat copper-coloured, which is normal. After that you slowly add Part B, stir it until the copper tint completely clears. The package contains enought powder to make 5 litre of working solution.
