InteliCoat Partners With Clearstar

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. -- InteliCoat Technologies, a world leader in the manufacture of coated paper, film, and specialty substrates for digital imaging applications, today announced that it has partnered with Clearstar to offer the first complete, finished solution to the digital fine art and photo market – Magiclée Torino 17M canvas with ClearShield Type C gloss liquid laminate. Subjected to extensive aging tests by a reputable testing lab, the fail-safe, matched-component solution guarantees archivability of the finished product, not just of the canvas itself.
 
A 17 mil poly/cotton canvas backed with the distinguished Wilhelm Imaging Research approval of 100+ years archival rating*, Torino 17M has been serving the digital inkjet industry for over 10 years.  According to findings from the 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.
 
 "Despite already having archival documentation, InteliCoat strived to take Torino 17M one step further in order to deliver a guaranteed, finished solution to the digital fine art and photo market," said Jennifer Chagnon, product manager at InteliCoat Technologies.  "As a result of the testing, we can not only certify the Torino 17M canvas, but we can also certify our canvas when it is 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 for generations to come."
