BROMAL PE 

BROMAL and BROMAL PE are high-speed silver-bromide photographic papers for making enlargements. They are characterized by a pleasant neutrplly-black tone, semitone richness and high maximum density. ? 
BROMAL is produced on baryta coated double weight (K) and single weight (P) support. When these papers are produced on double weight support, the emulsion layer is coated on four types of surfaces: glossy (G1, mat (M), silk (R) and crystal (KI. When BROMAL papers are on single weight support, they are produced only on glossy (G) surface. 
BROMAL PE papers are produced on white resin coated medium weight support. These papers are suitable for application in the field of classical and report photography, graphic and reproduction technique, as well as in cases when photographs are intended to be exhibited in open air and unprotected places. 
BROMAL PE photographic papers are produced on three surface types: glossy (G1, mat (M) and crystal (K). 
BROMAL and BROMAL PE photographic papers are produced in four contrast grades: special (1 ), normal (2), contrast (3) and hard (4).
