The accelerated ageing test is what is commonly used, though I don't know if
it was run on this product.

I recall David Day of BYU giving a presentation on what I think is this as
it was being readied to market, either at ARSC or MLA. 

I'd like to see the test results.

Rubbish. How do they known it'll last 1000 years. What scientific prove have
they? The only artifacts that have lasted that long are cave paintings, rock
carvings and a few manuscripts. CJB.
