Technical Report: Wilhelm Research Confirms ChromaLuxe Durability

The independent research organization "Williams Imaging Research Institute" has published an article on the durability of metal images printed on ChromaLuxe aluminum plates.

The following is our translation of this article into Chinese, and the original English text is attached at the end for the reference of friends who are interested in learning more about the durability of metal impressions.

A written research report (Note) published by Wilhelm Research confirmed the excellent durability of metal prints printed on ChromaLuxe aluminum plates. Henry Wilhelm himself explained to journalists and professional image output experts in Cologne that the study Proves that ChromaLuxe is three times as durable as silver halide paper, over sixty years, and states that metallic impressions don't start to fade until 65 years after storage.

If you haven't heard of ChromaLuxe, the printing basis of ChromaLuxe metal printing is to print the image on special paper with sublimation ink, and then transfer the ink to the special coating of metal aluminum plate by heat transfer printing among.

Stefan Fiedler, the person in charge of Salon Iris in Vienna and one of the recognized experts in high-end image output in Europe, also mentioned that Chromaluxe is undoubtedly the first digital image output on art paper in 1996. High-quality image printing make the greatest advances.

Since the sublimation ink goes deep into the coating, when the thermal transfer is completed, the capillary pores of the coating are closed, and the ink molecules are blocked in the coating, which is not afraid of air pollution or the influence of ultraviolet rays, so it has excellent preservation For example, graffiti on Chromaluxe metal prints can be removed with acetone.

Wilhelm Research's research test used two inks to transfer to ChromaLuxe metal aluminum plate: Epson Ultrachrome DS ink and Sublijet HD Pro Photo XF Sawgrass ink. The test results of both inks were the same, and the metallic image could last for up to 65 years. The key point here is that the institute measured both Chromaluxe metal prints and silver halide images in the same way, and that Chromaluxe metal prints are three times more durable than silver halide images.

This conclusion is very important to Chromaluxe. Not only the internationally renowned artist Cindy Sherman has used this medium to exhibit and sell her works, ChromaLuxe and dye sublimation techniques continue to be promoted to other businesses in the industry. For example, this exhibition uses Sihl sublimation paper, Ilford also printed images using the same method and exhibited them at FESPA in Amsterdam.
