Samples were printed with Series R6000, R6000HF and R6200 ribbons. Samples were laminated to aluminum panels and allowed to dwell 24 hours prior to testing. Testing was conducted at room temperature and consisted of 30 minute immersions in the specified test fluid. After immersion, the samples were removed from the test fluid and the printed image rubbed 10 times with a cotton swab saturated with the test fluid. The rating scale below shows the effect to the quality of the print for each sample.
