2005 Epson introduced a series of photo printers that used a new
Ultrachrome ink, called K3 for it's use of black and two shades of gray.
Since then these printers have become enormously popular and have
completely rearranged the black and white printing market.
The K3 inks produce different Dmax results on matte papers compared to the popular MIS ink sets based on Eboni black. K3 is so widely used now I felt it was worth adding a new section just for K3 test results. I also separated out the discussion on OBAs and Alpha Cellulose paper into a third section of its own.
Eboni Test Results - matte papers
K3 Test Result - matte papers
Optical Brightening Agents (OBAs) and Alpha Cellulose papers.
