There is another brand called FOMA from Czech Republic. Their Industrial Films are INDUX R2 to R8 representing C1-C6 and FOMADUX - RX8 (Special Film). These are almost equivalent to Agfa Brand.

I am also curious as to what the issue is with Agfa, Carestream(kodak), and Fuji. They make very good radiographic film.

Dear N B Rengaraju,

In fact issue is not related to quality ,it more inclined towards the cost of films .

Now a days , NDT market is getting saturated day by day ,competition is increasing .

Intent is to find a good brand which can be price competitive with Agfa & Kodak.

Dear Muhammad,

In this world, anything of a better quality and performance shall have a premium attached to it. So, you will never be able to get a same quality at same price.
Now, purely from commercial point of view, you can opt for Fuji films, which i feel is more cost competative to Agfa or Kodak. It can perform adequately under ideal conditions of processing. Its durability cannot be equated to Agfa or Kodak brands. This is from my practical experience.
Beyond this, I am not exposed to further cheaper brands and hence cannot comment.
Hope this information is useful to you.
