Paper Notes Estimated Print Life
Premium Polar Satin Sprayed with Krylon Clear UV

24 years


UV spray coating adds significantly to the fade resistance of dye ink prints. Similar tests without spray coating predicted fade resistance of 5-7 years.



Our testing facility* added six new fade parameters to more accurately predict printlife.

Parameter Patch that experienced failure End-point where failure is noted
Magenta Fade Red 30% loss
Yellow Fade Red 30% loss
Cyan Fade Green 30% loss
