Unlike the previous generation, where Sawgrass inks didn’t meet our expectations according to performance and durability, this new production line uses Epson SC F6200 printer combined with Epson Ultrachrome DS inks. According to Wilhelm Imaging Research it has an estimated lifetime of 65 years under specific conditions. Furthermore, the new ChromaLuxe EXT panels, offer better performance, UV protection and more neutral white base layer.
ChromaLuxe is the leader of high definition surfaces. Manufacturing process for aluminium panels, uses the latest technology to provide the highest quality. Through the process of dye sublimation, images are infused directly into the specially coated emulsion. No papers, adhesives or other materials are used. So they are not affected by extreme temperatures, heat or moisture.
The aluminium is only 1.2mm thick and extra light weighted, which is a great advantage while hanging on the wall or during shipping. Each print has the appropriate hanging system on the backside, so they are ready to be hanged on the wall! Metal Print will be the best option for hotel, office, restaurant, and home interior decoration, as well as for signage, art applications and photography exhibitions.
ChromaLuxe Metal Prints have a lifetime of up to 64 years, as defined by the certifications provided by the manufacturing company ChromaLuxe and Wilhelm Imaging Research, without these being at the same time a guarantee of lifetime and this because there can be no control as to conditions in which the prints are exposed at the end.
These certifications tests have been carried out under specific exposure conditions, such as indoor use, no sunlight or uv radiation, 20˚C – 28˚C temperature, 60% humidity and absence of environmental or other air pollution. Any deviation from the above can reduce the lifespan and affect the quality of the prints. Under normal conditions of sun exposure (direct or even reflected), the lifespan can be reduced to less than 5 years. Photolab Athens informs about the certifications of each method by the manufacturing companies, but does not guarantee the lifetime of the prints.
