There are many reasons why users are so enthusiastic about Jet. Some of these are: the ease with which plates can be manufactured, the high level of flexibility in photo-exposures, the convenience and simplicity of being able to use ordinary tap water for washing with the minimum risk of contamination, the absence of any additives, and the very short processing times.
