    Wilhelm rates Epson Durabrite ink longevity
    Epson
    claims that its DuraBrite inks are durable and fade resistent for up to
    100 years, and Wilhelm Research, an independent test facility, has
    conducted accellerated fade tests to see if Epson’s claims are
    accurate. The bottom line? Under the right storage conditions, prints
    made on the right Epson paper with DuraBrite inks will indeed resist
    fading for well over 100 years, according to Wilhelm’s results.

    The
    full report can be found in an 8-page PDF file, called Epson DuraBrite
    Pigment Inks and Epson Photo Paper vs. Store-Brand and Other
    Non-Genuine, Third-Party Inks and Photo Papers – WIR Print Permanence
    Ratings(look it up on google)When printed on Epson’s Premium
    Presentation Matte or Matte Paper Heavyweight, prints will last over
    100 years when displayed under glass, and over 185 years when displayed
    under UV filtered glass–as well as in dark storage.Tests also showed
    that when DuraBrite inks were printed on Epson Premium Glossy Photo
    Paper, they lasted 40 years under regular glass and 61 years under UV
    filtered glass. But when in an album or dark storage, tests revealed
    they would remain unchanged for at least 300 years.By comparison,
    store-brand inks lasted less than a year before starting to fade,
    according to test results.
