PrintFile’s archival preservers mid 1990’s vintage (left) ~ new 2016 PrintFile’s archival preservers (right). After 2 decades of normal household (dark) storage PrintFile’s archival preservers turned yellow. Test was conducted in a non smoking home.
The pages show the yellowing best when placed in a small pile. Single pages do not show the change as dramatically and may go unnoticed by the archivist.
