Nazdar publishes paper on weathering of outdoor graphics

Nazdar has released the white paper introducing ‘Image’, a new process to accurately predict weathering of outdoor graphics.

In the white paper, entitled ‘The Image Process: Accurate Full Color Image Aging’ Bruce Ridge, director of technical services at Nazdar Ink Technologies, explains that established methods for predicting how prints will fade outdoors were originally developed for screenprinting, and that the inkjet inks and technology used for four-colour process images are different - meaning aging profile are significantly less accurate.

"Weathering prediction processes have been developed over many years, but with inkjet printing gaining popularity in the production of outdoor-durable displays we need to update our approach," said Ridge. "In our latest white paper we outline Image, a new process for generating colour profiles that can help graphics businesses design, sell and maintain graphics that will look better for longer."
