With the HP 882 and 872 latex inks having successfully completed 3M’s certification process, 3M will now include them on the list of qualified printers and co-branded inks for the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty. This addition expands the warranty-backed solution set for graphics manufacturers with HP Latex R1000 Plus and R2000 Plus Printers. For brand-owners, this means that they will receive up to a 7-year vertical warranty on this new solution. The 3M MCS warranty for these inks is available worldwide.
The 3M MCS Warranty is widely recognized as the industry’s most comprehensive finished graphics warranty, providing non-prorated protection for the intended life of each graphic including fading, cracking, peeling, blistering, discoloration and many other aspects of graphic performance. It also includes an easily accessible online warranty matrix which indicates the specific warranty provided around the world for both vertical and horizontal warranties. The weathering technology and rigorous testing of ink and printer combinations that 3M stands behind with this warranty assures end users that their images will perform as expected for the life of the graphic.
The warranty will be available on inks labeled as a 3M MCS Warranty Component starting February 2019.
Graphics manufacturers globally that are using a 3M co-branded ink and are eligible to offer the 3M MCS Warranty can register and receive their personalized Certificate of 3M MCS Warranty online.
