100-years life in an album:
(Criteria for estimation)
The permanence presented above is an estimated using an accelerated dark storage tests designed for in silver-halide photos (ISO / FDIS 18909). Samples are printed with an optical density of 1.0 (each black, cyan, magenta, yellow) and kept in a controlled environment of high temperature and 50% relative humidity. The test environment is designed to accelerated colour fading. The rate of the decrease in the optical density and the rate of yellow discolouration of the paper is kept in an environment of 23°C 50% RH.
(Criteria for estimation)
When displayed in a glass frame in a typical indoor space (estimating 500lux / 100 hours per day) without direct sunlight.
Estimated lightfastness is made under the following test conditions. Light source: White fluorescent light 70,000lux; Temperature: 24°C; Humidity: 60% RH; A 2mm thick glass is placed on the sample with an air gap between the glass and the sample during accelerated testing.
10-year gas fastness:
(Criteria for estimation)
Estimated gas fastness is made under the following test conditions: Temperature (24°C) and humidity (60% RH) are controlled in an environment of mixed gases of O3, NOx and SOx . The ratio of the gases is typical to indoor air composition (O3: NOx: SOx = 3: 19: 1) with 100 times concentration in order to accelerate fading.
(Criteria for estimated of print longevity)
Estimated for image permanence are made using the Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc. Endpoint criteria: Accumulated illuminance causes a monochromatic / reflective optical density loss of 20 - 35% (figures set respectively for each colour, starting density of 1.0). Accumulated illuminance causes a different in colour balance of yellow, magenta and cyan (each component in composite black) of 12 - 18%.
Note for printing and displaying photos: The image permanence estimates presented above may vary depending on display / storage conditions. The expressed number of years estimates are the result of stimulated, accelerated tests conducted by Canon Inc. and do not represent a product guarantee.
Making your printed images last longer: Light, environmental gases, high temperature and humidity can accelerate colour fading. When displaying your photographs, avoid high intensity lighting and use of glass-filtered frames. Photos stored in the dark, using archival quality albums or storage materials, will tend to last longer than photos exposed to light. Avoid high temperatures and humidity to promote the image permanence of your photos.
