Wilhelm Research Print Permanence Ratings for ILFORD GALERIE Papers

We are delighted to share with you that Wilhelm Research has released a report on ILFORD GALERIE inkjet papers detailing expected permanence for images. Three media types are tested – ILFORD GALERIE Gold Fibre Silk, ILFORD GALERIE Smooth Pearl, and ILFORD GALERIE Smooth Gloss.  In all three cases the expected stability of prints framed under glass is over 200 years! Visit Wilhelm Research at www.wilhelm-research.com and download the full report!

“Products as permanent as these ILFORD offerings require very long test times, so while these media have not yet reached the first of our endpoint criteria, the tests have been in progress long enough for us to confidently give all three papers a greater than 200 year WIR Display Permanence Rating with HP Vivera Pigment Inks,” said Henry Wilhelm, co-founder, president, and director of research at Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc. Wilhelm expects these ratings to improve to even greater permanence ratings as the tests continue. He further adds that since these papers do not have optical brighteners they will resist yellowing which is also and important consideration when prints will be displayed for decades. Wilhelm Research, Inc. is a respected firm whose rigorous testing procedures are well known.  We are delighted to bring these important new test results to you.
