    Has anyone tried Kodak T-Mat L/RA Film?

    I have a box of this stuff in 8x10. Looks like a high resolution dental imaging film. Has anyone tried using this in a camera? If so, any tips before I begin experimenting?
    Thanks-Peter

    Hi Peter,

    tried T-Mat G/RA, seems to be about 200 speed.
    7 min. in D-76 70F was WAY too hot, will try 5 min. D-76 1-1 this weekend
    Double emulsion means wide open does not have enough depth of focus, need to stop down a bit.

    Good luck with it.

    I had to find out what you are talking about.

    According to this site,

    "KODAK T-MAT L Dental Film is a green-sensitive high-speed, wide-latitude film. It is useful in situations where soft tissue must be visualized and/or when exposure control is difficult. This film has a speed of 400 when used with KODAK LANEX Regular Screens, and a speed of 250 when used with KODAK LANEX Medium Screens. Both film/screen systems offer excellent radiographic detail for panoramic, cephalometric, and TMJ applications".

    As I got me a stash of this film, I am wondering if you experimented further and could give me your results regarding E.I. and developing times.

    I also would like how to decipher the coding system of T-Mat films.
    G should mean green sensitive. RA either radiological or rapid. (The data sheet says it is intended for RA processors, those being the fast processors from Kodak.)
    But I saw other letter combinations (like the L/RA in the original posting) and am wondering where the differences lie. E.g. which of the films are single emulsion and whicht double sided.
