Canon Colorado 1650 UVgel Ink Approved for 3M MCS Warranty program
Canon USA (Booth N1009) announced that 3M (Booth C10111) has recognized the Colorado 1650 and its UVgel 460 ink for approval in its 3M MCS Warranty program. This approval provides assurance that applications printed on the Colorado 1650 in combination with the UVgel 460 and 3M’s approved media will achieve the highest quality standards. Applications covered by the 3M MCS Warranty include vehicle graphics, signs, and displays, floor graphics, and others.
To qualify for the approval, the Colorado 1650 and its UVgel 460 inks, in combination with a variety of 3M media, successfully passed a series of tests carried out under 3M’s assessment conditions. Underpinned by the testing of ink, printer, and media combinations, including 3M’s weathering technology, the 3M MCS Warranty gives both print service providers and their customers peace of mind and confidence that their images will perform as expected for the intended lifetime of the printed graphic.
“At 3M, we take pride in the ability to provide graphics manufacturers the widest selection of premier printing solutions,” said Woonsik Shim, VP, Graphics and Personal Auto Business, 3M Commercial Solutions Division. “Extending the warranty through our partnership with Canon reinforces our commitment to quality and to our customers’ success, which in turn inspires confidence in the printed graphics.
“UVgel is a breakthrough technology that is transforming the way wide format graphics and other applications are being produced.”
