OBA-FREE, YET STILL BRIGHT WHITE
Called "Chromata White", this breakthrough technology has set Breathing Color apart for years. Normally, OBA-Free products have a yellowish surface. Our "Chromata White" technology, which we released in 2005, forever changed this by delivering OBA-Free with the desired bright white surface. This answered the needs of our customers to maximize the longevity of their prints while maintaining the most popular and desired look.
"Chromata White" gives the end-user the most stable platform on which to print photographs and fine art giclees without the metamerism issues or color shift issues inherent on other canvases. Optical Brighteners compromise the attainment of true color, they complicate profiling accuracy, and they inevitably deteriorate and yellow over time.

About the Varnish:
Timeless is a proprietary water-based, non-yellowing print varnish that has been developed to protect, preserve and enhance fine art and photographic prints produced on digital inkjet printers. Timeless was developed to be a significant upgrade to the available print varnishes on the market today.
STRONG UV PROTECTION - Timeless is manufactured with high levels of UV inhibitors.
CLEAR FINISH - Once dry, the finish is crystal clear.
ANTIFUNGALS - An important addition, especially for high humidity environments
INCREDIBLE HIGH GLOSS - Our gloss is extremely high and has already convinced glossy canvas users, who typically require an extremely high gloss, to switch to our Lyve Canvas and Timeless as their new and superior solution.
FINALLY, A TRUE MATTE - Imagine, an invisible finish for your canvas prints. The industry has been waiting too long for this. It was very expensive to make, but we did it. Try this on a Fine Art Paper and display your prints without glass!
COLOR ENHANCEMENT - Timeless will enhance the color of pigmented and ultrachrome inks.
SCUFF & FADE RESISTANCE - Increased resistance to scuffing and image fading. It will protect your expensive images against moisture and abrasion.
