Kodak SM Chemistry
The Kodak SM Chemicals are a remarkable new technology from Kodak; a system of no-mix, no-mess, easy-to-use chemicals featuring reduced effluent volumes and less effect due to low utilization.
New low-volume, thin-tank technology creates many advantages for minilabs. SM minilabs employ a simple new chemical processing system to achieve ultimate efficiency. Kodak has developed this unique system of paper and film process chemicals and processing technology to offer distinct benefits:
Less low utilization process variability
A 70% to 90% tank volume reduction combines with high-impingement agitation for dramatically improved chemical efficiency. You'll clean tanks less often thanks to rapid tank turnover and high agitation.
No-mix, no-mess chemical loading
Film and paper process chemicals are contained in four special processing units that are loaded directly into an Kodak SM minilab. A patented processor/chemical interface injects the correct quantity of concentrates into the tanks, eliminating all mixing.
25% faster first print access time compared to Process RA-4
While most minilab paper process equipment deliver a first print in approximately 4 minutes, your first print with Kodak SM technology will arrive in just 3 minutes.
