Canon Colorado 1650 UVgel Ink Approved for 3M™ MCS™ Warranty Program

1 min read

What you need to know

3M recently announced that the Canon Colorado 1650 and its UVgel 460 ink are approved with the 3M MCS Warranty, the most comprehensive graphics warranty in the industry. The Canon Colorado is already the industry’s most productive wide-format printer, while also providing flexibility and multiple application use. The graphics warranty is now the icing on the cake for this top-performing wide-format printer. Here is everything you need to know.

What is the 3M MCS Warranty?

It is the first finished graphics warranty in the industry and provides peace of mind to users who are looking for optimal durability, quality, performance, and consistency for the intended life of the printed graphic.

It provides non-prorated protection for the graphic’s intended lifespan. This includes full replacement protection against fading, cracking, peeling, blistering, and discoloration for the life of the warranty period. Applications covered by the 3M MCS Warranty include vehicle graphics, outdoor signs, displays, and floor graphics.

“The great thing about the 3M MCS warranty is the peace of mind,” said Jeff Reuter, Director of Production Print at EO Johnson. “You know that you are going to receive a quality product from the manufacturing of the material, through the printing and cutting process, to where it ends up adhered to the surface it will enhance.”

What was the testing process?

To qualify for the approval, the Colorado 1650 and its UVgel 460 inks successfully passed a series of tests carried out by 3M. Ink, printer, and media combinations were extensively tested in varying climates and seasons, and also at the 3M Weathering Resource Center. They were tested for resistance to sunlight, heat, and water – simulating years of exposure to punishing conditions.

When will the warranty be available?

The Colorado 1650 and its UVgel 460 ink will be available for the 3M MCS Warranty starting January 2, 2023. At that time, customers will be able to register to apply for the 3M MCS Warranty Certificate for the Colorado 1650 and UVgel 460 ink.
