Painesville, OH – The Avery Dennison Graphics & Reflective Products Division North America announced today that Drytac EnduraCoat UltraFlex Gloss liquid coating is now included in the Avery Graphics ICS Warranty Program when used with Avery MPI 1005 Supercast Series and Avery MPI 2005 high performance calendered, and MPI6200 Premium Reflective series films when printed on approved printers with OEM inks.
Drytac EnduraCoat UltraFlex Gloss aqueous coating provides resistance to color fade, edge lifting, "tenting" around rivets and gloss reduction for up to five year lifespan when properly applied, depending on the printer and ink system used.
"The Avery Graphics ICS Warranty Program provides assurance to our customers that we stand behind our products," said Paul Roba, North America Technical Manager of the Graphics & Reflective Products Division. "We are happy to include the Drytac EnduraCoat UltraFlex Gloss in the Program as an additional option for protection of images printed on Avery Graphics film and covered under our various ICS Warranty Programs."
