Contrast control
Contrast, in the range equivalent to grades 00 to 5, can be achieved by the colour filters used in the enlarger. Ilford Multigrade or Kodak Polycontrast filters are suitable, as well as Durst enlarging heads with yellow and magenta filters.

Exposure Guide
This paper is designed for use with tungsten or halogen tungsten light sources. Other light sources may provide different contrast values.
For Ilford Multigrade filters, grades 00 to 3 have the same speed (ISO P 250) and grades 4 to 5 require double exposure.

Grade/filter correspondence for an enlarger type
When no filter is used, the paper has a contrast of about 2 and an ISO speed of P 640.

Handling and safety lighting
Kodak OC or equivalent multi-contrast inact lighting is recommended. Red inactinic lighting can also be used. It should always be more than one metre away from the paper.

PRESTIGE RC 1 can be processed in a B&W paper processor or in a tray.

Any good quality developer for black and white paper gives good results. However, BERGGER recommends developing the paper in BERGGER Neutral Print developer for cool to neutral tones, and in BERGGER Warmtone Print developer for slightly warm tones. In general, it will take between 60 and 90 seconds at 20°C.

After a quick rinse with water or solution, the prints should be fixed in a black and white paper fixing bath, following the manufacturer's recommendations. In general, it will take about 1 min at 20°C.

Fixed tests should be washed under running water for 3 to 4 minutes.

Latent image stability
PRESTIGE RC1 has excellent latent image stability characteristics. No change in the prints appears even after 24 hours.
