When compared to standard Photo-Tooling products, Duratool XL has built in functionality to increase its useful life, particularly when it comes to exposure or ‘shot’ life without compromising D-Min rise. Duratool XL is available globally and has been very well received by customers that require longer life Phototool films.

We named the product ‘XL’ due to the durability it offers and it’s eXtended Life in a production environment. This premium micro matte film offers a new level of endurance (Low D-min) when experiencing intense exposure and high ‘shot’ counts. Duratool XL fills a need in the market that requires unparalleled longevity which helps reduce costs and ultimately sets the standard in demanding Photo Tooling applications."
