NATURAL AGING OF PHOTOGRAPHS

STANTON ANDERSON, & ROBERT ELLISON


ABSTRACT—The most important image-stability information comes from natural aging. At Eastman Kodak Company we conduct long-term monitoring of photographic image changes at 24C/40%RH, 26C/60% RH, with a −23C freezer check or control. Results for four products show good correlation between predictions from Arrhenius tests and trade experience.
