Mutoh has confirmed that its ValueJet 1638X (64” – 162 cm) and ValueJet 2638X (102” – 260 cm) printer models and Mutoh + 3M™ Universal Mild Solvent Inks are now part of the prestigious 3M™ MCS™ (Matched Component System) Warranty program for finished graphics. This will allow 3M-certified graphic manufacturers to offer warranties for applications such as fleet, vehicle graphics and indoor/outdoor signs.
The company said that 3M-certified graphics manufacturers, using the Mutoh ValueJet 1638X/2638X printer models and Mutoh + 3M™ Universal Mild Solvent inks in combination with qualified 3M products will be able to provide warranties up to five years for various fleet and sign applications and up to eight years for indoor applications, with the full support of 3M as total solution provider.

The 3M™ MCS™ Warranty program will be rolled out in the EMEA business area towards graphics manufacturers having a certificate of 3M™ MCS™ Warranty or wanting to apply for the certificate and is applicable to new ValueJet 1638X/2638X printers. Both ValueJet printers and Mutoh + 3M™ UMS inks will be available through Mutoh trained and certified resellers. 3M media and overlaminates will be offered through 3M and 3M authorised resellers.
Mutoh + 3M™ Universal Mild Solvent Inks
Labelled as a 3M™ MCS™ Warranty component, the Mutoh + 3M™ Mutoh Universal Mild Solvent (UMS) CMYK inks are available in special litre pouches for uninterrupted ink supply. This provides the functionality of an ink cassette, but with the advantages of a bulk ink system. The ink pouches are loaded in ink pouch adaptors that are mounted in the printers’ ink slots. Mutoh + 3M™ UMS inks combine the key benefits of resin-based, eco solvent and mild solvent ink chemistries. They offer a high colour gamut and special gloss preservation. In addition, the CMYK ink set covers 83 per cent of the Pantone C® colour chart. The inks are fixed and dried at temperatures below 50°C and are suited for both high quality and high speed printing.
About the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty
The 3M™ MCS™ Warranty, a system of matched components, is widely recognized as the industry's most comprehensive finished graphics warranty, covering fading, cracking, peeling and other aspects of graphic performance. The warranty covers the finished graphic, including film, overlaminate and ink performance. 3M is able to offer this level of assurance thanks to its expertise in weathering technology and its rigorous testing of ink and printer combinations. The 3M™ MCS™ Warranty assures end users that their images will perform as expected for the life of the graphic. Only graphics manufacturers having a Certificate of 3M MCS Warranty are eligible to extend this warranty to their customers.
