3M Announces Updates to 3M MCS Warranty

3M Commercial Graphics is announcing the newest latex ink offerings to qualify for the 3M MCS Warranty for finished graphics: HP LX610 and 792 Latex Inks.

This new program will allow graphics manufacturers with HP Scitex LX Industrial Printers or HP Designjet L28500 and L26500 Printers who complete 3M’s certification process the opportunity to produce graphics backed by the 3M MCS Warranty. The warranty will be available on inks labeled as a 3M MCS Warranty Component starting in November 2012 for HP LX610 Latex Inks and in February 2013 for the HP 792 Latex Inks.

The 3M MCS Warranty is widely recognized as the industry’s most comprehensive finished graphics warranty, covering fading, cracking, peeling and other aspects of graphic performance. The system of matched 3M components comes with the science and weathering technology that assures end users that their images will perform as expected for the life of the graphic.   

3M will also add requirements for digitally imaged graphics to receive a Certificate of 3M MCS Warranty. These new requirements will include completion of eLearning modules and a site visit from a 3M representative. Graphics manufacturers who are using a 3M ink and that are eligible to offer the 3M MCS Warranty can go to www.3MGraphics.com/warrantyregistration to register to receive their personalized Certificate of 3M MCS Warranty.

“The 3M MCS Warranty helps manufacturers assure brand owners that they are purchasing a quality product from a quality provider,” said Jennifer Greenquist, inks and warranties business manager, 3M Commercial Graphics. “We’re proud to have been the gold standard in the industry for more than 30 years.”
