    Third attempt is a success. Sort of. 25% more of concentrate was used, from 6 to 7.5ml. Negative out of the tank looks promising. Good compensation. I hope print will look as good.

    Prints are not bad from that negative.
    So in conclusion just a warning to first try, before committing important film to that new HC110.

    I have some on order, as we use it in our school lab.

    I have also used it for over 30 years, and can remember when Kodak made changes in trix a few years ago and listed the times "incorrectly" (customer service told me so) anyway, we just continued to use the old times for Tri x and it was fine

    Let me know, please, your experiences with it. As for me, I had to increase my usual ratio of 6 ml for 300 ml of working solution to 8 ml / 300 ml to use same times.. It's possible, that my water caused this, this new HC 110 is made by Tetenal, not Champion anymore, so there might be some difference in components, the new one less compatible with my tap water.

    Any new info? I've been using the old syrup for a while and just bought a liter of the new stuff for the college where I work to test. We switched over to Xtol, a developer I like alot. But it takes a lot of time and effort to mix up and I was hoping to just dump a bottle of HC-110 in three liters of water and not have to mix a powder every other week.

    I suggest you start a new thread rather than resurrect a 5-year-old thread.
