Canon professional print performance ranks highly against Wilhelm standard
The Canon imageProgrf iPF6100 large-format printer has been highly rated in testing by Wilhelm Imaging Research (WIR).
The printer, tested with Lucia pigment inks and a range of Canon media, achieved a 'Displayed Prints Framed Under Glass' average permanence rating of greater than 100 years for colour output, and greater than 200 years for black-and-white output.?
The Canon prints were also very resistant to damage from high-humidity environments, resistant to ozone exposure, and resistant to water damage, according to WIR tests. "Whether printed in colour or black-and-white, the prints are beautiful and will remain beautiful for a very long period of time," said Henry Wilhelm, president, Wilhelm Imaging Research.
