Ilford Multigrade IV RC Deluxe is a premium quality, 190 g/m² black & white variable contrast paper on a bright white resin coated base.

Ilford announced the world’s first variable contrast Multigrade paper back in 1940 and since then, has been evolving the range to become the ‘go to’ black & white papers for discerning darkroom printers the world over. As part of the world’s most iconic and popular darkroom paper range, the current emulsion design keeps up the long-running tradition of Multigrade quality. Giving you more response where you need it, this paper helps to reveal the subtlest highlight details whilst recording shadows in deep rich blacks accentuated by the bright white base.

This makes it the ideal choice for beginners printing straight from negatives as well as more advanced users who don’t want to compromise on creative control.

It delivers a full tonal range and exceptional image quality throughout its wide contrast range of grades 00-5. Seven full grades of contrast can be achieved when used with Ilford Multigrade filters. It can be used with most common safelights for black & white darkroom paper.

Note March 2020:

Ilford Multigrade IV RC has now been superseded by a new 5th generation variable contrast paper. The new Ilford Multigrade V RC paper shares the same 190 g/m² RC base and is available in Glossy, Pearl and Satin surfaces. The new Multigrade RC is approx. 1 stop faster than Multigrade IV RC and no longer has a large step change in exposure between grade 3.5 and grade 4, therefore only fine-tuning of the exposure is now required when switching between all grades.
