    Coatings for Inkjet Prints

    Steve

    that's a very interesting site, if you look here

    http://www.livick.com/method/inkjet/pg2I.htm#fade

    he talks of Ultrachrome prints fading after 25 years.

    Makes me wonder where the often quoted "200 years" came from?

    Coatings for Inkjet Prints

    I think some of the estimates of "200 years" come from Wilhelm's site. I believe he tests with low level floursecent and Livick tests with sunlight, and maintains that using sunlight is more realistic because many prints hang in mixed lighting. Coatings seem to double the fade resistance in some paper/ink combinations, though.
