Is the laminated TZ tapes UV resistant?

Description of Solution 200000025525

Brother laminated tapes were attached to coated metal plates, and placed in a fade-inducing chamber at 83�C for 100 hours to simulate a year in a sunny environment. Then they were placed in a chamber at 63�C for 400 hours to simulate a year in, not only heat and light, but water as well. Only yellow tapes showed significant signs of fading while the others showed little sign of fading to the eye.  All the characters on the label were still legible.  No longer period were tested.
