KODAK EKTACOLOR Chemicals for Minilab Print Processors

Kodak has worked closely with and supplied all of the main minilab manufacturers with photochemicals for many years. Regardless of your minilab type, Kodak has a chemical system optimized for quality and productivity.

These chemicals are designed for your convenience with short process times and reduced replenishment rates. You'll get a faster first print from startup and reduced volume of effluent.

KODAK EKTACOLOR PRIME Chemicals for Minilabs with Standard Process Times

For minilabs with standard process times, use KODAK EKTACOLOR PRIME, PRIME SP, or PRIME LORR Chemicals for Process RA-4. These chemicals are designed to reduce storage, labor, and processing effluent in mid- to high-volume minilabs.

  • Single-part liquid concentrates
  • Easy mixing and handling
  • Reduced number of mixes, longer lasting replenishers
  • Sizes available to fit your needs
  • With replenishment rate and/or temperature adjustment PRIME LORR Chemicals can also be used in short-cycle processes.

KODAK EKTACOLOR Chemicals for Process RA-2SM

Kodak's SM chemicals are simple, safe and easy. Clearly marked cartridges can only be loaded onto your minilab in the correct position. There is no chemical mixing, which eliminates the potential for mixing errors that can result in incorrect processing of your customers' films or costly rework of prints.

  • Short cycle time with fast developer and bleach-fix times
  • Faster process cycle than Process RA-4 — obtain prints faster for increased productivity
  • Optimized for all levels of process utilization
  • Process RA-2SM is intended for processing EDGE and ROYAL Papers in minilab processors
  • Specially designed chemical concentrate packages called Processing Units (P1 & P2) install directly on processor and require no mixing of replenishers

Note: KODAK PROFESSIONAL ENDURA Papers are not recommended for use in this cycle.
