Avery Dennison Announces ICS Performance Guarantee On Solvent
Painesville, Ohio - Printing professionals using Hewlett Packard printers can now choose materials from the
outstanding family of products available from Avery Graphics with the security of knowing they are covered
under Avery’s industry standard, compatibility and durability warranties.
The digital print professionals of Avery Dennison Graphics and Reflective Division have announced that HP's
8000s, 9000s and 10000s printers meet the criteria for Avery’s Integrated Component System (ICS) Performance
Guarantee. The decision to offer this guarantee followed extensive testing on the durability of HP's Low Solvent
inks printed on specific Avery MPI, DBM and DFM products.
"The ICS Performance Guarantee is the gold standard amongst compatibility and durability warranties", states
Tom Durner, Strategic Alliance Manager for the Avery Graphics and Reflective Products Division. "We do this
testing so graphics providers do not have to. They can feel confident that Avery media, when printed on these
HP devices, will meet all of their requirements for high quality, long lasting prints."
In the ICS testing process, Avery measured the outdoor durability of their most common media using the HP Low
Solvent inks. The testing and certification included various forms of graphics protection, including hard laminates
and liquid clearcoats. As a result, there are many combinations and choices covered under Avery’s Performance
Guarantee. Graphics providers are now able to provide warranted solutions aligned with their shop's capabilities,
and the unique needs of the end users.
Graphics produced on the HP printers with Avery’s full line of digital media products are appropriate for vehicle
wraps, bus wraps and posters, perforated window films, promotional graphics, banners and billboards.
