3M has announced that the HP 882 and 872 latex inks have successfully completed 3M’s certification process and will now be included on the list of qualified printers and co-branded inks for the 3M MCS Warranty.
This addition expands the warranty-backed solutions available for graphics manufacturers with HP Latex R1000 Plus and R2000 Plus Printers. According to 3M, brand-owners will receive up to a 7-year vertical warranty on the new solution, and the 3M MCS warranty for these inks will be available worldwide.
3M stated the following in a press release:
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 is set to be available on 3M MCS Warranty Component inks starting in February.
