Hypo crystal is sodium thiosulfate good for printing should be used in many
the solution depends on the process used.
It is not the best for film used alone. You should use a Acid Hypo by adding
sodium Bisulfite or Potassium Metabisulfite.
water 2 liters
Sodium thiosulfate ( hypo) 480 grams
Sodium bisulfite 45 grams
8 to 10 minutes
it has a little harding action
I use hypo a lot but for exp vandyke
for film I use a fixer like th Ilford easy cheap more harding for my film
