> Are Lysonic E inks archival or are they not? Yes, 25-30 years at 2Mlx-hr/yr. > ...the inks... are not pigmented [thus] they are not archival. Yes they are not pigment-based. They are dye-based inks. They use archival-quality dyes, which have 25-30 years before noticable color change in the image, and, 70+ years with the FA+>Y inkset used in IRIS printers. Same dyes, twice the glycol in the E inkset. Pigment-based inksets can have 100+ years stability. Tim Vitale Preservation Associates 510-594-8277 (new) - Please: Stay on topic.
