9  What is light fastness of neon inks?  

Indoor light fastness (no direct sunlight):
1. Under fluorescent light: 12 months. 
2. Indirect sunlight and fluorescent light: one to six months. 
3. Under black light: six months.

Neon inks have no outdoor light fastness. Use them for indoor signs. Signs such as window graphics with the images facing outside have no light fastness. 

These figures are the result of OKI's accelerated tests. The light fastness varies depending on the environment conditions, and OKI does not guarantee it.
