I just ordered a box of 8 x 10's. The 4x5's are $220 for 25 and the 8x10's are $180 for 6.

I want to see how they perform and how they compare to my home made plates. I will not receive them for weeks though.

There is some discordances between their datasheets.

http://www.slavich.com/pfg04.htm
on figure 12 (Hardening time), freshness goes to 12 month

http://www.slavich.com/summary.htm
First table, last line (storage period), for PFG04, one (1) month.

Probably error typo but in case of the storage is good for 1 year, how they deal with this long period. DCG must be freshly made before shooting, is it not ?

I just talked to Integraf and the gentleman there stated that the PFG-04 DCG plates are good for 18 months but the 4x5 plates they had were dated 04/02 which made them 2 years old. He wanted to give me a 30% discount but 2 years was too old for me. So I ordered some 8x10's which will not arrive for about 7 weeks.

So it seems the 12 months average is the correct statement. I believe I read somewhere that they add something to get the longer shelf life which decreases sensitivity somewhat. I will research and see what I find.

"I will research and see what I find."

Thank you, I have been wondering about this myself. I have asked everyone I have encountered only to get no information.
