Kodak EM 4489 film

Coated on a sheet film .007" polyester base. Dimensionally stable and low-outgassing. Fine grain, blue sensitivity, slow speed emulsion. Use safelight filters No. 1A, OA or OC and Kodak Developer D-19. The SO-163 film is twice as fast as 4489 and this makes the SO-163 slightly grainier and with less contrast. Most biologists prefer 4489 and material scientists prefer the SO-163. Internal packing is 5 x 50 sheets.

Recommend to store frozen, which slows film's aging to insignificance; therefore the expiry date is of no concern. Leave frozen film to warm overnight before opening.
