Ilford Harman Selenium Toner is another innovation by Ilford Photographic, a leader in the film/chemical industry. This toner provides rich and deep blacks with a tendency to push color towards the purplish end of the spectrum. Olive hues will be absorbed yielding brown tones on fiber-based silver paper.

Selenium toned prints have a subtle look that no other type of toner can yield; Dmax is enhanced with a corresponding &quotbump&quot of print quality
Toxic - Must be handled in a well ventilated area and treated as hazardous waste
Multigrade Warmtone papers are very responsive to selenium toners: using higher dilutions (e.g.: 1+10, 1+20) gives a slight cooling of the image tone and a shift in hue towards red; When you use at lower dilutions (e.g.: 1+3, 1+5), you can get a purplish brown
Colder papers react less rapidly, but they still benefit from selenium toning's highly effective deepening of the maximum black and its expansion of the entire tonal range; The reaction of selenium on the silver halide (AgX) of the print hardens the adherence of the image to the paper; This improves the chemical stability of the print as well as its permanence and archival properties while also defining its appearance
