    Hello guys!

    Last week I bought a special offer of this paper and at the shop I was told
    it was RC but this evening I printed a couple of sheets and it felt like
    fiber based paper. The label on the enveloppe just says "Grade 2 bromide
    paper, matt surface"
    I don´t have muche experience with fb but it just folded like soaked paper
    and the back didn´t feel like plastic as the other RC papers I´ve used.
    Any coment on this paper will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Its fiber base, see for more.
    One way to tell fiber from RC is to see how quickly it
    dries. RC will dry very quickly, fiber takes hours.

    Kentmere Bromide is a fiber based paper. I guess the shop owner didn't
    know what he was talking about, or he just plainly tricked you into
    buying something he wanted to get rid of.

    This said, Kentmere Bromide is a very beautiful paper if you know how
    to handle it.
