Avery's ICS Performance Guarantee to cover Inkware inks and Avery media
Avery Dennison Graphics Division North America and INKWARE, now will guarantee the performance of graphics produced with Inkware inks and selected Avery media on the Oce Arizona line of solvent-system inkjet printers.
Fleet graphics, vehicle wraps, signs, and other types of graphics produced with specified Avery Dennison materials and Inkware Arizona inks, and used within the guidelines of Avery Dennison's Integrated Component System (ICS) Performance Guarantee, will be warranted for up to five years.
Inkware, based in Meredith, NH is a fully owned subsidiary of VUTEk and produces a wide range of solvent-based and UV-curable pigmented inks as well as clearcoats and maintenance fluids used in wide- and grand-format inkjet printing.
James Pike, Inkware's director of international sales, notes that Avery Dennison's ICS performance guarantee is internationally recognized and says, "We are proud to be a part of it. We believe that customers should have a choice in the inks and materials they use."
Tom Durner, business development manager for Avery Dennison Graphics Division, agrees that choice is important: "People want to run the inks and media that make the most sense for their specific applications, especially when the manufacturers of those components have already done the compatibility, weathering, and durability testing for them. It is because of that extensive testing that Avery Dennison and Inkware are able to offer this warranty program."
