5 Outdoor unprinted display permanence rating based on white background color change according to SAE J2527; in a vertical display orientation in simulated nominal outdoor display conditions for select high and low climates, including exposure to direct sunlight and water; performance may vary as environmental conditions change. For more information, see HPLFMedia.com/hp/printpermanence. Durability ratings are based on vertical applications in Zone 1. Films used in Zone 2 will be reduced by up to 50%; films used in Zone 3 will have up to 50% reduction from Zone 2.
