InteliCoat Technologies® (South Hadley, MA) is announcing it has partnered with Clearstar® to offer Magiclée® Torino 17M canvas with ClearShield® Type C™ gloss liquid laminate, which the company says is the first complete, finished solution to the digital fine-art and photo market. Having been subjected to extensive aging tests by a reputable testing lab, the matched-component solution guarantees archivability of the finished product, not just the canvas.
Torino 17M, a 17-mil poly/cotton canvas (backed with the Wilhelm Imaging Research approval of 100+ years archival rating), has been serving the digital-inkjet industry for more than 10 years. According to aging tests, samples of Torino 17M protected with ClearShield Type C gloss liquid laminate have successfully completed light-fade testing under cool fluorescent light (50K lux). The results indicate that the projected display lifetime is greater than 102 years when printed with a Canon® iPF™ 8000 and 89 years when printed with an Epson® Stylus Pro™ 9800.
As a result of the testing, InteliCoat Technologies can certify the Torino 17M canvas when it’s finished with the ClearShield Type C Gloss topcoat from Clearstar. This means that fine artists and photographers can be confident that prints produced with this method will last.
