Abstract

We have characterized the effect of 1 ppm of ozone at 50 % RH and 23°C on dye-based and pigmented inkjet images, on chromogenic, and on silver black-and white images on resin coated paper in dark storage. Prints in albums were evaluated unprotected and in polyethylene page protectors (PP) and sleeves (S). In this work, we evaluated the effect of ozone on density, colorimetry, and physical appearance.The primary effect of ozone was density loss. Mounting prints in an album minimizes the effect of ozone on inkjet prints. Sleeves or page protectors provide additional, protection against the effect of ozone. We recommend this additional protection for long-term storage of inkjet prints in albums.
