Product Description: ORWO duplicating Negative Film DN21 produces intermediate negatives (master positives). DN21 is used for duplicating from black and white positives as well as color positives. With color negatives expect a very well balanced grey scale in comparison. A new AHU-Layer (Anti Halation Under Layer) between the emulsion layer and the base guarantees an outstanding anti-halation. The excellent photographic and physical properties enable the production of extraordinary black and white prints. It is ideal film for long term storage. Base: Safety base, polyester, 125 m, Protective Gelatin Layer Emulsion Layer AHU-Layer Anti-Static Layer

Processing: According to ORWO instruction 1182 (D96), we recommend processing to an average gradient of g = 0.65 NOTE: Process as soon as possible. RMS-Granularity: Less than 9 (read at a net visual diffuse density of 1.0 above the minimum density using a 48 m aperture) Modulation transfer factor m30: 0.80 Characteristic curve DN 21: Processing ORWO instruction 1182 Processing time 4.5min, 6.0 min, 7.5min

Spectral sensitivity: For equal energy spectrum

Darkroom lighting: Films should be processed in total darkness. If absolutely necessary, processing can be done at a light of a 15 watt-lamp (indirect) with ORWO safe light filter no. 108 (dark green), Kodak no. 3 or Ilford no. 908, but a distance of at least 75 cm should be kept.
