The Valca brand has a fairly long reputation in Spain, but most of us
outside the Iberian Peninsula have never heard of it. It seems Valca
Film was much-loved from what I can gather in the numerous archived
Spanish reports about the factory's unfortunate demise in 1993.
The name "Valca" is a tribute to the area where the factory came to be
built, by combining letters from the Valle de Mena (Mena Valley) and
the Rio Cadagua (Cadagua River) which runs through it. Four
Basque families, started the factory in the town of Sopeñano on the
banks of the Cadagua River.
During the mid-century decades, they grew in production of black &
white negative film and x-ray materials, providing Spanish
photographers with an affordable option to imported films.
Here you can see the original Valca cans containing this film.
And the labels I've made for it based on vintage Valca designs.
several tests I've rated it at ISO 6 and as expected it has gained some
base fog and grain size from age. Check my results developed in our Labeauratoire's Caffenol
And you may enjoy experimenting with other developers as well.

Here's your chance to try out this rare film.
I'm making some rolls available for your experimenting
keeping these rolls inexpensive by
film cassettes and sticking on an artsy label I've made just so you
know what's inside. Using a bulk loader I made rolls of approximately
20 exposures each, sometimes a bit more or less and as with most bulk
loaded film the very last picture of each roll will not be exposed as
that is where it is taped. This is NOT a stock product from Valca and
am not proporting to represent that fine company in any manner.
