Professional photo chemicals for your film and paper developing
Tailor-made solutions for minilab, prolab, finishing, darkroom, black-and-white and color photography, directly from the manufacturer
TETENAL 1847 GmbH is a "young" company and, with over 174 years of accumulated experience, is one of the leading suppliers in the production of photographic chemicals for all areas of analogue photography. How does this work? With an employee initiative that is decidedly unique in history: decades of knowledge in the development and production of photographic chemistry were rescued and taken over in the autumn of 2018 as part of a bankruptcy of Tetenal Europe GmbH with a promising restructuring concept.
Under the name TETENAL 1847, we are now using our in-depth knowledge to develop photographic chemistry with innovative approaches and focus exclusively on the production of imaging chemicals for the analogue market, both for commercial users and the consumer market. Thanks to the established product quality, TETENAL 1847 GmbH has also been a recognised OEM manufacturer for various well-known companies for years.

Using our many years of experience, it is our aim to develop and implement optimum products in dialogue with our customers and partners. Fortunately, analogue photography has been experiencing a real renaissance for some time now. Young people in particular are rediscovering traditional photography; unlike quick snapshots with a smartphone, it is all about the fun of design and creative development - from the photographic shoot to the development of films and papers at home. Certainly, the Classics segment is interesting and enjoying increasing appeal.
TETENAL also carries a broad portfolio of special development chemicals for large commercial customers. Here it is mainly photo book manufacturers, online finishers and profile labs that purchase highly concentrated solutions from TETENAL 1847, packaged in drums or IBC containers of up to 1,000 litres, sufficient for a yield of up to 100,000 m² of colour paper.
A closed analogue loop, from hobby applications to industrial development in profile laboratories, developed and manufactured at the headquarters in Norderstedt near Hamburg/Germany.

New generation of photochemicals: PHOTOTABS
B&W Developer and Fixer chemicals in tablet form
PARVOFIN TABS and SUPERFIX TABS are the first products of a new generation of photochemicals that TETENAL is now launching: B/W developer and B/W fixer in tablet form.
More than 25 years of experience in the development and production of ecojet tablets for professional colouring machines are the foundation for the implementation and fulfilment of market demands for a new concept of photochemicals. For the first time, end users have access to a unique technology that is only offered by Tetenal worldwide.
The extraordinarily long shelf life of PHOTOTABS of at least 4 years makes them particularly economical, especially when work is done only sporadically over longer periods of time. A very special advantage of the tabs is their temperature-independent storage in a very wide range from - 40°C to + 40°C - no other photochemical product is equipped with such a tolerance.
PHOTOTABS offer many advantages:
- Always fresh chemistry
- Easy to use
- Free of boron compounds
- Dust free
- Temperature independent storage
- Shelf life for years
- Easy and safe transport
- Ideal for sporadic use
- Constant results over long periods
Records and instant films have shown that there is a demand for nostalgic products from target groups who have not even grown up with these technologies. This is also the case with film photography. Whether it is the camera from the attic of the grandparents or directly from a second-hand shop - cameras, films and the associated image style are increasingly in demand.
"But the fascination of analogue photography does not end with the exposure of the film," says Carsten Gehring, Managing Director of TETENAL 1847 GmbH. The Norderstedt team has made it their mission to bring the fascination of film development to those who have never developed a film.
Taking analog photography means taking the time to slow down and concentrate on the essentials. Developing a film yourself and having all the possibilities to determine the final image with the TETENAL chemicals used is what makes analog photography magic! Each picture is unique!
