Adorama VGFB Matte is a variable contrast black and white enlarging paper with a double weight fiber base. The warmtone
characteristics of this paper give warm black image tones, on a warm white base. Although a high speed paper, the warm
characteristics of this paper do result in it being a slightly slower speed paper in comparison to the standard Gloss
Variable Grade Fiber Based product, ie enlarger exposure times will be required to be slightly longer for this Adorama
VGFB Matte product when directly compared to Adorama VGFB Gloss. The use of color filters permits selection of required
contrast from a range of grades similar to that of graded papers, with the advantage to the user of reduced paper stock.
The warm image tone gives a high quality paper with a consistent warm image tone across the grades, exhibits good
sharpness and is suitable for dish processing. This paper is designed for use with tungsten or tungsten halogen light
sources. Other light sources may give different contrast values. Exposure of the paper isstraightforward, depending on
which filter system is in use. For Ilford Multigrade filters, grades 00 to 3.5 have the same speed (ISO P 250) and
grades 4 and 5 require approximately twice the exposure. For the filter settings of table B, grades 0 to 4 have the same
speed (ISO P 320). Grades 00 and 5 require more exposure (ISO P 250). When no filter is used, the paper has a contrast
of approximately grade 2 and a speed of ISO P 640. Open onl
