Film Speed/ Factor

Im Looking for film factors for agfa d7, d5, d4 and d3 film, note: its not the r factor im looking for.
But the film speed / factor for a castings technology international calculator ,

Kind Regards
Damien

Dear Damien,

Film Factor by definition is: Amount of Exposure (R) per unit area of the Film required to produce a desired optical density.
And Inverse of Film Factor is Film Speed. Unit of Film Speed is 1/R.
Now Optical Density shall also depend on film processing conditions like dark room arrangement,fog density, temperature of processing chemicals etc.
So this is a parameter which should be arrived at by taking trial exposures for a particular application i.e. for castings, welds etc.
In general, by experience, given below are the film factors for the films that you had referred. you can make a start with these figures.
The Factors are for IR-192 Gamma Source. These factors shall change for different energy of radiation sources.

1. D-7 -------- 2.2R
2. D-5 -------- 2.7R
3. D-4 -------- 3.5R
4. D-2 -------- 8.0R

Never used D-3. So no idea. Hope the above is useful to you

Regards
N.B. Rengaraju

I think you are looking for relative exposure factors where D7 is 1 - start point.

D8 = 0,6
D7 = 1
D5 = 1,5
D4 = 3
D3 = 5
D2 = 8

These values are for IR192. Other energies have other factors, I gleaned this information from GE's website:

are you looking for something like the correlation to the film speeds of Fuji films (25,50,100,150) to the Agfa distictions?

Yeah i got it, thanks
D8 = 22

D7 = 35

D5 = 50

D4 = 120

D2 = 250

I feel like that's backwards. the higher D number represents a the faster speeds of film.

What is your desired density with these R-factors? for Example i use a 2.6 r factor for a 2.5 density on d-5.
