Colorado 1650 UVgel ink has 3M seal of approval

Canon Production Printing has announced that after conducting tests on a wide range of 3M media, 3M has certified the Colorado 1650 and its UVgel 460 ink with its 3M Performance Guarantee.

 This certification proves that applications printed on the Colorado 1650 in combination with 3M’s approved media achieve the highest quality standards.

The Colorado 1650 printer is an award-winning roll-to-roll printer featuring a flexible, yet robust ink set and FLXfinish, a new approach to LED curing that allows the user to choose between matte or gloss modes for each individual print. This means customers can achieve different aesthetic finishes without the need to change inks or media.

The Colorado 1650, which was introduced at FESPA 2019 in Munich, is recognised by customers for being able to print a wide variety of different applications, both for indoor and outdoor use.

Canon has worked closely with 3M on securing the quality and performance of UVgel prints on a broad range of 3M media.

“Commenting on the 3M certification, Dirk Brouns, Vice President Large Format Graphics at Canon Production Printing, said: “When we began developing our breakthrough UVgel technology, it was our ambition to combine all advantages of the existing ink technologies into one solution and offer our customers the opportunity to work with the widest range of media possible.

“Accordingly, it’s great to see that media manufacturer 3M has certified UVgel ink and Colorado 1650 prints with the 3M Performance Guarantee, thus demonstrating that our customers can consistently achieve high quality and reliable prints. Our ever-growing customer base is rapidly adopting UVgel as its preferred technology, both for media that is widely used today, as well as emerging categories of the future, such as PVC free print media.”
