Proceedings PaperEffect of RC paper support on photographic stability
|Format||Member Price||Non-Member Price|
The composition of photographic color negative papers is reviewed. Information is presented on the potential detrimental effect of the polyethylene resin-coated (RC) paper support on the thermal stability of the silver halide element. Evidence is provided for the major role that the pH of the dry paper stock has in this effect. A mechanism for the detrimental photographic performance involving both the RC and the paper stock is proposed.
