    That paper is only available in rolls, it seems. And for specialized photo printing: "Galerie Digital Silver Black and White Photo Paper from Ilford. This is a high-quality, bright white printing paper that displays a neutral color on a resin coated base. It is optimized for digital printing on tricolor laser enlargers or LED systems produced by Durst, OcÚ, Pollielettronica, Fuji and others."

    I have used a few hundred rolls of this paper,, FWIW it is Galerie G4 with an extended red sensitivity.. If one requires a Grade 4 paper then this would work, or one could tailor make digital negs to this paper....

    I'm not sure if it is true but there was an interview ( with the folks at ADOX and Paula C ) and comparison between LODIMA / Lupex and they seemed to be the same silver chloride orthochromatic papers, they are not panchromatic at all.
    Im not sure if Lodima is made anymore, but Lupex is, OP It is similar enough to AZO paper ...that this might be useful in how to use it...

    http://www.michaelandpaula.com/mp/html/Azo_Main.html

    Folks love to use it with an Amidol developer, but it's not necessary, and will work with any paper developer, If you go the Amidol route, you might want to keep clear of the stuff called Chinese Amidol, reports are that there was some sort of contaminant that makes it a little more difficult to use.

    thanks for the input here !
    basic need in question is for a paper negative 8x10 and up to 16x20inchs that will be contacted.
    it is the contact paper which has the AZO look that I am interested in. And if the same paper would be as a [paper neg If it was panchromatic ]
    So a view that ilford digital would be a good paper neg. BUT R.C. --
    And I most likely I will have to take the road to make my own contact paper .... NEW THREAD....

    Any way , It is sad there is no panchromatic paper to use as a paper neg !!!!

    There's no realistic market for it - because it would effectively likely end up as costly as sheet film. And paper emulsions are not great for making negs.

    Unless you're prepared to make, sensitise and coat a suitable emulsion yourself (and herein you will learn why it would be as expensive as sheet film), there are very good reasons why fantasies about ultra cheap film are fundamentally ahistoricist.

    If you have a suitably large amount of money to invest, I'm pretty sure Harman Technology would consider making a batch of panchro sensitised Direct Positive Paper.
