Fixer G 354. The liquid fixer for manual treatment
G354 emits less process-specific odors, while maintaining its high quality.
G354 is Agfa's standard, single-part, non-hardening, low-odor fixer for both manual processing and automatic tabletop processing.
Can be used with following products and services
Recommended developers: G150 for manual processing and G153 for automatic tabletop processing.
G354 fixer gives high-quality results for processing a wide variety of X-ray films, including double-sided blue or green films for conventional radiography, laser films and duplicating films. G354 fixer can be used in a broad range of processing cycles and temperatures. The best results are obtained when combining G354 with G150 developer for manual processing or G153 developer for automatic, tabletop processing.
Reduced emission of chemical substances
The majority of chemical substances used in common developers and non-hardening fixers dissolve readily in water and do not excessively evaporate into the air. The G354 fixer, however, contains an acetic acid pH buffer and sodium sulphite to prevent the fixing salt in the fixer from decomposing. Due to the higher pH, the emission of both acetic acid and sulphur dioxide using G354 has been greatly reduced.
Ecologically improved packaging
The G354 fixer is supplied in shipping cartons made of 60% recycled cardboard. Cartons contain concentrated fixer in either eighteen ½ liter bottles (each yielding 2.5 liters of ready-to-use chemical), or twelve 1 liter bottles (each yielding 5 liters of ready-to-use chemical), or four 5 liter bottles (each yielding 25 liters of ready-to-use chemical).
G354 is packaged in translucent polyethylene (PE) bottles fitted with a PE ECO seal. The screw cap and the stripe at the top of the label are color-coded for identification purposes (blue for fixer, red for developer).
The color components have been reduced as much as possible, however, and the bottles show no aluminum remnants after use. Both features make the bottles easily PE-recyclable.
Easy handling and mixing
G354 bottles are easy to open, thanks to the built-in cutting edges of the cap. Simply open the cap, place it upside down on the mouth of the bottle, apply a little pressure and turn the cap clockwise to break the ECO seal.
Mixing is easy using the automatic Chemix mixing unit. Remove the cap, invert the bottle with the ECO seal over the seal opener and press. The seal is automatically broken, releasing the contents. Whether using manual or automatic mixing, G354 fixer will never result in sludge formation.
