OBAs are a class of chemicals added to paper to make it appear "whiter" to your eye. These brighteners work by absorbing UV light and re-emitting light in the blue region. OBAs breakdown over time and allow the true, more natural shade of paper to emerge - thus yellowing will occur.
OBA breakdown does not affect the life of an inkjet print. However, the changing shade of the base paper will become more noticable over time.
Papers with low OBAs will shift in color slightly over a long period of time. The best way to minimize any OBA shift is to protect prints under UV resistant glass.
All products are compatible with aqueous inks. Not designed for solvent, latex or UV.
* Heavy cotton art papers may not consistently auto-feed in the top main paper tray. They can be fed by hand easily, and may feed without assistance on some occasions. Returns on this paper are not accepted on the basis of feed problems.
