As an FYI Ciba Geigy bought ILFORD as they needed the technology and knowledge to coat CIBACHROME one of the most difficult complex coated photo 'paper' products ever.....SDB Silver Dye Bleach process. When all the colour photographs in all the world are faded to nothing only CIBACHROMES will be left.

Um, not quite. What about the dye transfer ones? Carbon prints? Even the best modern ink jet materials exceed Ciba - and I liked Ciba a lot and it was certainly longer lasting than the chromogenic materials of its day, but not the champion.
