Term Definition
AZO Dyes

A highly stable dye used in the emulsion of Ilfochrome Classic prints. The purity of these dyes is responsible for the rich, saturated look of the prints. By incorporating them in the emulsion of the paper instead of the chemistry it is processed in, the dyes act as an anti-light scattering layer during exposure, resulting in a sharper image. The dyes are selectively removed in the bleach bath, to a degree determined by the exposure and the processing in the developer.
