1. Features and uses
FUJICOLOR CRYSTAL ARCHIVE PAPER is a silver
halide color paper designed to produce high-image
quality color prints on both analog and digital printers.
This paper incorporates new silver halide emulsion
technology, coupler technology and layer design
technology to deliver enhanced color reproduction,
white purity, image stability and handling.
Furthermore, when used in conjunction with the
Frontier 5**/7**, it enables the realization of superfast
processing, resulting in a drastic improvement of
productivity.

Handle in total darkness. If safelight use is
unavoidable, observe the following precautions.
 Expose paper no longer than 1 minute to light
emitted through two Fuji Safelight Filter No. 103A
(or Wratten Safelight Filter No. 13) in a 10-watt
tungsten lamp safelight located at least 1 meter
from the work area.
 Safelight filters fade with extended use and need
regular checking. Replace when paper fogging is
detected.
 Exposed paper is susceptible to safelight-induced
sensitivity increases in the exposed area. For this
reason, exposed paper should be subjected as
little as possible to safelight illumination.
3. Pre-processing paper handling /
storage
The higher the temperature and humidity, the more
paper, whether unused, unexposed or exposed, is
susceptible to adverse changes in speed, color
balance, physical characteristics and other properties.
Unprocessed paper is best stored at low
temperatures. Specifically, the following conditions
should be used for paper storage.
 Short-term storage: Store in a cool and dark
location, away from direct sunlight,high temperature and high humidity
 Long-term storage: Below 10 C (50 F)
Raw paper which has been stored at a low
temperature (by refrigeration) should be set aside and
allowed to warm to room temperature prior to being
opened. If the paper is taken out of its packaging
immediately after being removed from refrigerated
storage, condensation will form on the paper surfaces,
resulting in print color changes and easily damaged
surfaces.
The shortest periods required to return freezer- or
refrigerator-stored paper to room temperature
(minimum temperature equalization periods) are as
follows.

Notes on Prints Storage
NOTES
Do not heat paper in order to equalize
temperatures.
Remove paper from refrigeration one
day before use.
1. Prints should be inserted into albums, mounted,
or placed into a bag (plasic*) for photographic
prints before being stored.
*Made of polyester, polystryne or polypropylene plastic, etc
If exposed paper remains unprocessed for extended
periods of time under normal room conditions or is
subjected to high temperature and/or high humidity,
changes in the color balance and other properties may
occur.
The time between exposure and development should
be fixed in order to obtain consistent quality. Avoid
waiting until the next day to develop the exposed
paper. Rather than holding the paper for processing
the next day, initiate processing as soon as possible.
4. Processing
This paper is designed for use with Fujicolor Paper
Process, CP48S and CP49E or RA-4 type processes.
Combining this paper with Fuji chemicals results in
many advantages including faster processing, greater
processing stability, reduced contamination hazards,
greater ease in solution preparation and higher print
quality.
2. Even during normal storage, it is recommended
that prints be stored at a place as free as
possible from hot and humid conditions, and
away from direct illumination. The following are
examples of undesirable storage conditions.
 Storage in a room closet facing a wall
exposed to cold outside air (which may
cause condensation).
 Storage in a place near the cealing, such
as an attic, the top of a closet or
cupboard (where high temperatures may
occur).
3. Storing prints with their front surfaces facing
each other may result in unexpected problems.
If the adjacent print placement is unavoidable, it
is necesaary to keep the surface separated by,
for example, the use of interleaving sheets of
paper.
7. Light sources for viewing
5. Control strips
Processing control can be provided through the use of
FUJICOLOR CRYSTAL ARCHIVE PAPER Control
Strips Process CP-40FA/43FA/47L/48S/49E.
6. Post-processing print handling /
storage
Since prints are usually used for the long-term
recording of images, as much effort as possible is
made to use materials that exhibit the least amount of
change overtime. But the effects of high force during
folding, light, heat, oxygen in the air, contaminating
gases, humidity and mold cannot be completely
avoided. It is advised to use low forces during
assembling the album. Also the change in the
photographic image or base material are minimized by
maintaining the appropriate storage conditions for
prints, such as those used by museums and art
galleries. Temperature and humidity control is the
most important key to minimizing the change that
occurs in prints. Prints stored in the dark under the
following conditions may be expected to show almost
no changeover time.
When inspecting finished color prints, it is essential
that an illumination source will be used that has
superior spectral characteristics, adequately high
color temperature and sufficient brightness. This is
because results can appear different, depending on
light quality. For precise results, prints should be
examined under the conditions designated by ISO
3664-2000. As a general guide, the following
conditions are recommended.
Color Temperature
: 5000±300 K
Average Illumination
: 500 Lux or more
General Color Rendering Index : Ra 90 or more*
* To attain these values, special fluorescent lamps designed
for color evaluation (e.g. EDL type) should be used.
When inspecting finished prints, be careful to shut out
all external light and colored reflected light.

9. Use with FA/FA compact
seriesrinters
11. Back printing
Since cyan forming dye has been modified in
CRYSTAL ARCHIVE PAPER, a problem may arise
when this paper is used on the printing condition
settings made using the densitometer QT-600 built
into Fuji Minilab FA/FA compact series. When
CRYSTAL ARCHIVE PAPER is used with Fuji
Minilab FA/FA compact series of minilabs, it is
necessary to set the printing conditions using the
“ring-around print” method or another densitometer.
10. Markings (Box/Emulsion numbers)
10.1 Box markings
12. Spectal dye density curves
“+” indication means that at least 1 spliced babyroll
is packed and or a different production control roll
number having same photographic properties.
10.2 Bag labelling
13. Spectral sensitivity curves
“+” indication means that a splice is present in the
babyroll.
For splicing ISO standards are defined in the following
document:
ISO standard 1009 2009 paper dimensions.pdf
10.3 Emulsion numbers
Emulsion numbering will be in ascending order from
001 (with backprint) or 101 (without backprint) at
introduction.
Note:
FUJICOLOR paper is marked with a three-digit emulsion
number followed by an additional three digit number
which is provided for production control purpose only.
Should any problem arise with FUJICOLOR CRYSTAL
ARCHIVE PAPER, the additional three digit number
suffix to the emulsion number should be indicated on the
claim.

14. Image storage characteristics
* Time-induced white background staining (yellowing) is as important as dye image fading in affecting image quality.
** In regard to color image dark storage stability, the level of humidity is just as important as temperature. For this reason, more
evaluations can be made by using the two humidity standards --- one for high humidity storage conditions (70%RH) and
recommended for long-term storage (40%RH).
*** Since in common domestic situations sunlit areas may be bright as 1,000 lux or more during the day and drop to 300 lux in the
and at night, storage conditions are usually designated to be at an average of 500 lux of light exposure for 12 hours per
