No graphic can truly be complete without the coverage of a quality warranty that helps provide peace of mind and assurance to every graphic manufacturer. When it comes to warranties, 3M is committed to covering all components of a long-term graphics installation, including premium print films, inks and more. With the introduction of new 3M co-branded inks with Durst, Epson and OKI Data Corporation backed by the 3M MCS Warranty, 3M is furthering its commitment to providing graphic manufacturers with the widest range of warrantied products that ensure the longevity and quality of each and every finished graphics installation.
“At 3M we are always looking for additional ways to establish ourselves as the leader in warranty coverage and provide graphic manufacturers with the widest selection of co-branded inks and printer combinations backed by 3M’s long-term warranty. It is our goal to allow graphic manufacturers the ability to choose from premier printer options and still have a 3M ink to qualify for the 3M MCS Warranty,” said Adam Larson, Global Portfolio Manager for 3M Commercial Solutions Division. “Expanding our offerings and relationships with Durst, Epson and OKI Data Corporation was the perfect opportunity to continue providing graphic manufacturers with the highest quality of products backed by the robust 3M™ MCS™ Warranty.”
Finished graphics made with the following new 3M co-branded inks are eligible for the 3M MCS Warranty:
• Durst Rho Roll 3M Premium UV Inks compatible with Durst Rho 312R and 512R printers
• Epson – 3M UltraChrome GS3 Inks compatible with Epson SureColor S-Series S40600, S60600 and S80600 printers
• 3MTM SX Ink from OKI Data Corporation compatible with the OKI Data Infotech ColorPainterTM H3-104s printers
3M is also expanding its longstanding partnership with EFI, introducing new EFITM VUTEk GS 3MTM Premium UV White Ink which is eligible for the 3M MCS Warranty when used with EFITM VUTEk GS 2000 and 3200 printers. 3M Printable Fabric 9100 will also now be eligible for the 3M MCS Warranty when printed with EFI 3M GS and GSr Premium UV Inks.
The 3M MCS Warranty is the industry’s gold standard in finished graphics warranties, covering fading, cracking, peeling and other aspects of graphic performance. 3M is able to offer this level of assurance thanks to its expertise in weathering technology and its rigorous testing of ink and printer combinations. The 3M MCS Warranty provides manufacturers with confidence that their well-crafted projects will exceed expectations and perform for the life of the finished graphic.
