Well if a paper ink combination lasts 15 years, and the complete blockage of
UV adds only 10%, I'd say that the sprays are not worth it. Now pigments are
another thing. They are subject to more destruction from UV than many of the
dyes being used in the Lyson inks. The Lyson dyes are more affected by
visible light, according to past tests at Wilhelm.

I am certain that if and when he finally publishes the new Epson tests, we
will know 100% more!
