Storage and Display
MULTIGRADE IV RC Portfolio prints which have been processed as recommended will have a more than adequate storage life for most purposes. Print life will be shortened, however, in adverse storage conditions, or if the print is exposed to oxidising gases.
It is recommended that prints made for display are toned to protect them from the oxidising gases that are found in many environments.
