Summary and Thoughts

Canon's latest dye ink, ChromaLife 100, is promoted to perform well in terms of print life - albiet with several specific display condition requirements. Canon claims extended print life up to 20 years on a Canon paper when displayed under UV glass and controlled environmental conditions.

Our test on UltraPro Satin using ChromaLife ink increased print life by at least a factor of two as compared to previous Canon dye inks. Though we do not feel ChromaLife is an "archival" ink per se, the image life improvement coupled with outstanding color saturation makes this ink a dynamic player in the market.
