3M Commercial Graphics and Seiko I Infotech Inc. (SIIT) have introduced GX 3M inks—vibrant, flexible colored inks made for use in the Seiko I Infotech ColorPainter H Series Printers. Designed for printing on many 3M brand opaque, translucent and reflective graphic films, GX 3M inks can be applied on or to fleet and vehicle graphics, indoor and outdoor signs, and promotional graphics.
The solvent inks have excellent conformability, and are available in eight rich colors, which include cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light cyan, light magenta and two shades of white. GX 3M inks are suitable for graphic films applied on compound curves, corrugations, and riveted and flat surfaces, offering outstanding versatility to users. When protected with the proper 3M overlaminate, the inks are also durable and weather resistant.
"We are proud to collaborate with Seiko Instruments USA and to introduce the SIIT 3M Ink series to the market," said Adam Larson, marketing supervisor, 3M Commercial Graphics. "The Seiko ColorPainter H Series has proven to be a successful printer in the wide-format graphic industry; we are excited about the opportunity to offer a co-branded ink for this reputable machine."
The combination of GX 3M inks and ColorPainter H Series Printers gives users a valuable tool for productivity, quality, and cost effectiveness. ColorPainter H Series Printers are built for reliable operation in high-volume environments and offer industry-leading printing speeds and rich saturated color output. These cost effective printers produce graphics backed by the 3M MCS Warranty. As the first finished graphics warranty in the industry, the 3M MCS Warranty helps protect discriminating users who require optimum performance for the intended life of the graphics.
"3M's reputation in the industry made it an easy choice to partner with them to create this ink series," said Pat Ryan, general manager, Seiko Instruments USA, Inc. "With 3M's thorough testing and confident backing of its products, our customers know they can be confident too."
