CIBACHROME MICROGRAPHIC FILM CMM processed in Process P-5
Dark Storage Conditions
There is no indication of
change at temperatures lower than 80°C over the time period in which
the tests were carried out.
An experimentally measured
dye density loss of 0.3 is often used to calculate meaningful extrapolations.
At elevated temperatures, some chromogenic materials undergo such a change
within one to two months.
CIBACHROME MICROGRAPHIC FILM
undergoes such minute changes when exposed to high temperatures that a
density loss of 0.3 would probably only occur after many years of accelerated
Therefore, based on the present results it is reasonable to conclude that under normal storage conditions - i.e. at room temperature (20°/68°F) and 40% relative humidity - CIBACHROME MICROGRAPHIC FILM is extremely stable. An archival stability of several hundred years can be expected.
