ROCHESTER, N.Y., October 19, 2005:
Eastman Kodak Company today announced availability of KODAK INDUSTREX HS800 Film, the company’s fastest and most versatile film for non-destructive testing. The new film adapts to any exposure method - direct, lead screen, fluorescent screen, or fluorometallic screen - and employs KODAK T-GRAIN ® Emulsion technology for high speed, high contrast, and fine grain. Combined with the efficient KODAK LANEX Fast Screens, HS800 Film offers more speed than any film-screen combination available today.

“This versatile new film advances the science of non-destructive testing and demonstrates Kodak’s dedication to providing the NDT industry with new film-based and digital solutions” said Martin Graen, general manager of Kodak’s Non-Destructive Testing business. “Kodak continues to bring new and exciting solutions designed specifically for industrial radiography to markets around the world.”

KODAK INDUSTREX High Speed HS800 Film is the fastest film in the INDUSTREX Film family. HS800 Film offers high speed and high contrast through a wide range of optical densities when used with fluorescent or fluorometallic screens where very short exposures are required, such as for inspection of off-shore pipelines.
