Ilford MULTIGRADE Paper Developer is a liquid concentrate print developer suitable for dish or tray developing of all black and white photographic papers such as resin coated (RC) and traditional fiber based (FB). It is a dimezones/hydroquinone derivative. Ilford MULTIGRADE developer is characterized by a neutral tone.
Multigrade developer is a rapid working developer usually used at a dilution of 1:9 but for greater development control and economy it can be used at 1:14. Multigrade developer is clean working and features excellent keeping properties.
This 1 liter bottle, normally mixed 1:9, will make 10 liters of working solution.
The Brownie Camera Guy says:
I use Ilford MULTIGRADE more than any print developer for both RC and fiber papers. It produces deep, neutral blacks and excellent highlight detail. It stays consistent for long printing sessions with a steep exhaustion curve.
