A lot of Carbon Printers would disagree with you and this statement shows your lack of knowledge on the subject. The amount of pure carbon pigment allowed though the nossel heads is nothing compared to a pigment load applied by hand by true carbon printers.

Carbon inkjet prints and their longevity is a sham put forth by the inkjet manufacturers.

Nothing lasts forever, but that does not make it OK to print supposedly fine art images on trash materials which is where your logical train ends.
