    Bad chems -> Blix

    Hi guys,

    I was mixing my chems (Tetenal) which were standing still from beginning March, lockdown.

    Now, I got to part 2 of my BLX mix, when I saw these particules showed up.

    The question: does this mean the chems are bad? If not, can the particles form a problem.

    It's not uncommon for some of the chemicals to precipitate out and form crystals. Heat the concentrate to > 85F and stir to redissolve the crystals.
    If it's for film I'd test with some unimportant film before using on important film.
