AS-24KODAK TRI-X AEROGRAPHIC Film 2403 KODAK TRI-X AERECON Film SO-050
KODAK TRI-X AEROGRAPHIC Film2403 and KODAK
TRI-X AERECON Film SO-050 are panchromatic, negative
aerial camera films that have high speed, moderate contrast,
and extended red sensitivity for the reduction of haze effects.
The photographic properties of these two films are virtually
identical; the physical properties differ due to the difference
in base thickness.
Their ESTAR Base and ESTAR Thin Base provide
flexibility, moisture resistance, high tear resistance, and
excellent dimensional stability. These films have highly
hardened emulsions which provide high acutance, or
improved image sharpness, and permit high-temperature
rapid processing in modern continuous processing machines.
These films can be processed in the KODAK
VERSAMAT Film Processor, Model 11 or 1140, with
KODAK VERSAMAT 885 Chemicals, KODAK
VERSAMAT 641C h emi cals, or KODAK VERSAMAT
Chemicals, Type A. KODAK TRI-X AEROGRAPHIC
Film 2403 can also be processed at normal temperatures in
conventional rewind equipment, such as the Gordon/Morse
M-10 Developing Outfit (Military Designator: B-5) using a
variety of Kodak black-and-white developers.
Caution: KODAK TRI-X AEROGRAPHIC and
AERECON Films are susceptible to static markings at low
relative humidities. These films are packaged at the optimum
relative humidity (45 to 50 percent) and are maintained at this
level by the sealed package. In conditions of low relative
humidity, these films should be loaded and used immediately
after the package is opened, before the film becomes too dry.
The camera should be checked to see that all its parts are
grounded adequately. Also, these films should be handl ed
carefully during all loading, unloading, and preprocessing
KODAK TRI-X AEROGRAPHIC Film2403 is a high-speed
film for use in low-altitude, large-scale aerial mapping for
photogrammetry, or in mapping at low light levels caused by
low solar altitudes.
KODAK TRI-X AERECON Film SO-050 is suitable for
reconnaissance under minimum levels of illumination.
