View Full Version : Does Dixactol Expire?
I bought a new kit of Dixactol a couple of months ago in a clearance event from a camera store. The bottles look very old and were covered in dust. I don't see a date anywhere on the bottles and they have been sealed but I'm assuming that there is an expiration date for these solutions. Any recommendations for using this or should I just throw it out? It was only $4.00 for it so I won't be out much. I've got some 120 film that expired in 1972, maybe i'll use them together and just see what happens.
I don't know.
"The life of the concentrate 'A' should be not less than 6 months in reasonably cool conditions. Concentrate B does not deteriorate in storage to all intents and purposes."
From personal experience I know that, once opened you get about six months. Fresh, usable solution A should be clear or at most a very pale straw colour. If it is any darker its on the way out and if its dark brown its expired.
It's looks like coffee so I'll let it go. Thanks
