How Permanent is a Fabio Napoleoni metal Print?
The image is infused INTO and not ONTO the special coating. The prints
have an archival value and durability without the need for protective
glass. In fact, these metal prints are not only scratch-resistant,
they are also waterproof. This make them ideal for hanging in
bathrooms, kitchens, and other areas where paper prints would be
susceptible to water damage. Displaying without glass has several
advantages: viewing images is more intimate; there is no possibility
of breaking the glass during shipment or while on the display; glare
is reduced. Images printed with the metal infused process will last
for generations when displayed indoors and out of direct sunlight.
Like any fine print, metal prints should not be exposed to direct
sunlight. However, they can be hung outdoors if they are out of direct
sunlight. Metal prints have an archival value that is better than the
best Giclees and photographic papers. Rochester Institute of
Technology has conducted accelerated aging tests on metal prints and
show an archival value of over 150 years!
