How does UV-light damage documents and prints?
Natural high polymers from cellulose and protein are decomposed by solar irradiation with a high percentage of UV-light. Cellulose fibers, from which paper is made, are particularly sensitive to UV-radiation. In conjunction with water, which is always present in the fibers, and under UV-radiation, atmospheric oxygen reacts with the water to form hydrogen peroxide. This results in a gradual oxidative breakdown of the cellulose. This breakdown is the main factor causing decomposition of cellulose in light. Consequently, because oxygen and moisture cannot be eliminated, every precaution has to be taken to prevent the exposure of valuable articles of paper or cellulose fiber to UV-light. Similar reactions can be seen in some pigments, causing colors to fade.
