We took Chromaluxe MetalPrints and mounted them vertically in full sun in South Florida. After 33 months, Chromaluxe Outdoor showed significantly less signs of fading and color changes, and no peeling or surface damage. Mounting in other locations, orientations, or in less direct sunlight will significantly extend the life of the image.
This is the Metal used by MetalPrints.com for its proven extended life outdoors. It showed no significant fading or color change.
