A4 Canon Photo Paper Pro Platinum 20 shts



The Ultimate in Photo Paper Quality. The PT-101 Pro Platinum Paper is Canon`s flagship high optical density paper with a six-layer construction designed especially for Pro Photographers looking for optimum image reproduction. When used with Chromalife 100+ inks, this Pro Platinum (PT101) paper from Canon has the durability to last up to 200 years when looked after in a photo album. This pack contains 20 sheets of A4 paper. Weight: 300gsm.

To further progress, they follow this commitment and have developed Canon`s new flagship glossy photo paper. Ink-receiving layers are functionally separated into a colour-reproduction layer and an absorbing layer, and a chromogenic enhancer which amplifies light is added into the resin-coat layer.A neutral white which has a high degree of whiteness is adopted for the colour of the paper.The demanding photo quality needs of professional and advanced amateur photographer is realised when used with Canon`s new dye-based inks [CLI526, CLI651, CLI671 etc]. The colour reproduction in red areas is expanded, rich and deep blacks are achieved and the higher image durability is achieved. The best glossy photo paper which turns printouts to artwork.

A new standard for white has been introduced
There are various "whites" for a white paper such as bluish white, yellowish white, dark white and bright white. The "white" Canon chose for professional`s and advanced amateur`s artwork from these various "whites" is the "white" which combines "crispy white" and "neutral white".

Because of the Alumina, quick ink absorbency is achieved
The shape of alumina pigment which is the main material in the ink-receiving layers of Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT- 101]. On the other hand, silica pigment which is often used for affordable photo paper is a "spherical shape". Both alumina and silica use binders which play a gluing role to join pigments but a "plate-like" alumina uses less binders, so it can absorb inks quicker than the silica ink-receiving layers.

Because the layer is separated into two layers, quick solid-liquid separation is achieved
The ink-receiving layers of Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT- 101] are separated into two layers and the amount of binder in each layer is optimized. It gives specific functions for each layer, the top layer is for colour reproduction and the bottom layer is for absorption. This is how solid-liquid separation of colour material elements and solvent elements can be processed quickly.More vivid colour and higher resolution compared to Photo Paper Pro [PR-101], which has a single ink-receiving layer, is achieved. Since Alumina is adopted and the ink-receiving layers are separated into two layers, Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101] is able to produce prints with richer gradation, smoother expression, more vivid colour and higher resolution.

The dye is fixed to the surface of the paper, resulting in deeper blacks and a clearer overall photographic finish.
There are various blacks for the "black" in photographs such as bluish black, yellowish black, reddish black and greenish black.A deep, rich black is a "black" that looks truly black to the eye. Rich, deep blacks are not only important for reproducing deep-black areas of photos, they also contribute to the overall density, contrast and vividness of the photo. If the black is light, it weakens the photo`s impact, and makes the photo plain.Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101] is developed to produce a deep, rich black by fixing the dye close to the surface of the paper. Canon has also been trying to make the black ink neutral, and achieved the creation of the deeper "black" in combination with Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101] and 2008 new dye-based black ink [CLI-221].

Photos are beautifully reproduced because the dye is fixed close to the surface of the paper
The ink-receiving layer on the surface of the paper accepts the dyes in the ink and produces the colour. If this layer is too thick, the dyes will spread into the bottom making it difficult to gain enough density. However by making the ink-receiving layer simply thinner, it causes the water in the ink to overflow to the paper`s surface.

Optical density immediately after printing is greater than ever, so you see the real colours of your photos, right away
With ordinary inkjet paper, the colours emerge gradually so you cannot quickly see the final results of the photo including colour and contrast. Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101] is a completely different experience. The colour density is high immediately after printing. Images are bright and vivid as soon as the print job is finished.Improved durability (light fastness/gas fastness) by adding the new durability enhancer in ink-receiving layersCanon focused on both paper and ink, and worked on things paper can do and things ink can do to improve image durability of photo prints.

Mechanisms for photo image deterioration (Presumption)
Canon presumed the mechanisms of discolouration of printouts is pro_mainly caused by these three deteriorative reactions listed below.

The reaction of incoming gas deteriorates the colour material
The deteriorative chain reaction starts because of the material generated in the process aboveThe chain reaction of light through oxygen deteriorates the colour materialThe approach to Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101]Canon discovered the "new additives" to minimize the discoloration of the colour material from the discoloration mechanisms of printouts and successfully introduced it to Photo Paper Pro Platinum [PT-101].
