IMAGELINK LC Direct Duplicating Microfilm is a slow-speed film with low contrast and very high resolution for excellent reproduction of original films with varying contrast and background density. It is specifically intended for use where an intermediate print master is needed to make multiple release prints for distribution.

IMAGELINK LC Direct Duplicating Microfilm enables direct image duplicating, which produces images with the same polarity as the master silver film. This microfilm is produced on a clear PET base with a permanent environmentally friendly anti-static back layer. It remains very stable even during changing processing conditions. With correct exposure, the film has an extremely low minimum density. Spectral Sensitivity IMAGELINK LC Direct Duplicating Microfilm features an orthochromatic emulsion.

Processing Film can be processed with conventional chemicals in all tabletop, medium-tank, and deep-tank processors.
