I will have to disagree with both Eric and Carl in that I have found the
coating and exposure of Pt/Pd to be better at 60F or the upper 50s. The
real trouble starts when the temperature gets above 70F and especially
As far as low temperature I would expect some limit to how cold the
processing can be performed at, but do not have information on this.
For coating and exposing, the lower temperature gives better
consistency, and produces better all round results in image quality.
And lower temperature is even more important when the RH is higher.
