Works very well.

Priced very well, as it dilutes to 5 liters for developing and 10 liters for printing. Consistant, reliable results. I plan on buying this fixer again.

The only Fixer I use

By

I use this for all my 35mm and 120 film. It's the only one that lasts a good while. The quantity is just the right amount for average development use.

Great general purpose fixer

By

I use Ilford Rapid Fixer for both film and prints. The fact that it is a non-hardening fixer for todays film and paper is great. I've used Kodak's fixer (which has the hardner) and it makes it a pain because the wash times are very long. I've ever only had one RC print not wash out all the fixer and ended up with the yellow stains. But that was all my fault for being in too much of a hurry and thinking I could get away with a quick rinse. So you do have to rinse properly with this fixer, or any for that matter. This is a good fixer and have not experienced and short comings.

Easy to Use, Works Great

By

I mix it 1:4 in distilled water and fix my negatives for 10 minutes. It works great. It doesn't smell too bad either (for fixer anyway). Used with PanF+, FP4+, HP5+, Delta3200, TriX & TMAX so far with no issues.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  what are the mixing instructions?
THOMAS G  The ratio is 4:1. I usually mix up 22 ounces (for a two reel tank) of working solution: 17.5 oz water, 4.5 oz fixer. You can use it repeatedly until it fails to clear your test scrap. This is enough for most two reel daylight tanks. Ilford's website has a pdf with mixing instructions... The temperature of the fixer should match the temp of the developer and rinse as much as possible. In the winter I use a bowl of hot water (into which I place a measuring cup of fixer) to get the fix to 68F (20C). In the summer I stick a frozen ice pack into the measuring cup. This fixer is easy to use and yields good results.
THOMAS G  BTW, this response is for developing film, primarily - fixing paper prints is even less involved. Mix 4:1 and you're all set.
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
GENE L  Rapid fixer can be used for both film and paper development. Diluted 1:4 for film, the dilution can be then diluted with an equal part of water to make a 1:9 dilution for paper.
