|Ink drying time||Immediate (less than 30 seconds)||Ink is dry to the touch after printing. However, it takes 24 hours before it cures and becomes durable.|
|Resistance to water||Good||Bleeding does not occur with incidental water contact. However, encapsulated lamination is recommended in wet conditions.|
|Gas-fastness||Excellent with EPSON Archival and UltraChrome Ink; poor with dye-based ink.||With regard to dye-based images, lamination or framing under glass greatly increases gas-fastness and the life of the print.|
|Handling requirements||Use care||Handle with care to avoid scratching and kinking.|
|Lamination feasibility||Hot or cold lamination||Lamination extends the life of the print and increases durability.|
