Wide Format Solutions

Canon UK and Ireland has announced that 3M has recognised the exceptional quality of the Colorado 1650 and its UVgel 460 ink for approval in its 3M MCS warranty programme. 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 many 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 rigorous tests carried out under 3M’s stringent assessment conditions.

Underpinned by the thorough testing of ink, printer and media combinations, including also 3M’s elaborate weathering technology, the 3M MCS warranty gives both print companies and their customers peace of mind and confidence that their images will perform as expected for the intended lifetime of the printed graphic.

The warranty provides non-prorated protection for the graphic’s intended lifespan, including protection against fading, cracking, peeling, blistering, discoloration and many other aspects of graphic performance.

UVgel inks produce odourless, ultra robust output fully certified for indoor use, as well as being very durable for outdoor use. And with customers benefitting from zero VOC emissions, zero hazardous air pollutants and a low average ink use of 6.4 ml per m2 across the more than 2500 UVgel engines installed worldwide, UVgel has already proved itself to be a sustainable and cost efficient alternative for latex and eco solvent technology.
