FerraniaFerrania wins TIPA Award for Inkjet Photo Paper : After having already received the "DIMA 2005 Digital Printer Shoot-out Award" at the PMA International Convention and Trade Show (February 2005 Orlando), PermaPix Advanced Archival Inkjet Photo Paper also is presented the "TIPA 2005" award for "Best Inkjet Photo Paper." Ferrania's PermaPix Advanced Archival Inkjet Photo Paper (Professional PLUS product name in Europe) is the 2005 winner for 'Best Inkjet Photo Paper'. The following were the "Official Comments" of the TIPA judging panel: "Glossy porous inkjet paper, while desirable for its instant drying and water-fastness, has a notorious stability problem. Its porous surface allows ozone to penetrate and react with dye-based inks.

This phenomenon, known as gas fading, can cause inkjet prints to lose their color density in as little as six months. The use of Ferrania PerDura Technology (the key ingredient in PermaPix Advanced Archival paper) and prevents this problem by introducing a chemical protection. This enhances the permanence of the printed image on Ferrania OptiJet (PermaPix) Professional PLUS paper to an exceptional level."

Outstanding color reproduction
"OptiJet PermaPix Advanced Archival Inkjet Photo Paper features the company's exclusive patented PerDura Technology, which has resulted in the creation of an entirely new category of inkjet media - archival microporous paper utilizing dye-based inks. TIPA's and DIMA's recognition validates our belief that this product is unsurpassed, even by the more expensive OEM brands," stated Tom Zohn, Inkjet Director of Growth for Ferrania. "PerDura Technology is only the latest achievement of Ferrania Imaging Technologies' Research & Development laboratories. PermaPix - sold as Professional PLUS Advanced Archival Inkjet Photo Paper in Europe - is the premium product in the wide range of OptiJet photo quality inkjet papers and compatible inkjet cartridges. These products produce inkjet photo prints with outstanding color reproduction and image permanence."

PermaPix - Instant drying and waterproof
New PermaPix Advanced Archival Inkjet Photo Paper is available in the USA in 15-sheet 8.5" x 11" and 50-sheet 4" x 6" retail packages. PermaPix allows consumers to print highly durable, archival photos with any ordinary inkjet printer, whether they use dye-based or pigmented inks. PermaPix is instant drying, waterproof and truly archival. And it's typically less expensive than other OEM brands. It's a great solution. Consumers can use ordinary inkjet printers and ordinary inks to create photos that last a lifetime. Zohn said, "OptiJet PermaPix paper is the only inkjet photo paper on the market that eliminates ozone fading and offers instant drying and waterproof protection". While ordinary microporous inkjet papers can lose up to 70 percent of their color density within six months, the new paper from Ferrania - which features the company's patented PerDura Technology - provides a strong and lasting line of defense.

Ferrania - PerDura Technology
Patented PerDura Technology blocks ozone and prevents gas fading by introducing a catalytic element to neutralize ozone effects. By being catalytic it does not get used up or consumed, but rather regenerates itself. This highly advanced and patent-protected technology requires no special skills, handling, printers or inks. Most consumers can simply use their current printers to produce color prints that are not susceptible to ozone or water. "Other so-called 'archival' papers are not waterproof and they do not dry instantly, which raises the issues of smudging and pages sticking together," Zohn said. "Other papers also don't work well with pigmented inks, so consumers find themselves having to change printers or inkjet cartridges."
