UltraPro Satin 2.0 51+ years *
UltraPro Gloss 2.0 51+ years *
Premium Matte Papers 51+ years *

*This round of tests simulated exposure for 51 years. A result of over 51 years means that at the time the test was terminated, no appreciable fade was recorded.


The point of this test was to confirm the durability of Epson DuraBrite Ultra inks. We are satisfied that they are indeed pigmented and will last many decades on basically any inkjet media you pick.
