Canon’s ground-breaking Océ Colorado is the first wide format printer to use UVgel ink and this new ecologically-friendly technology has now been recognised and rewarded with GREENGUARD Gold Certification. It means that products printed on the Océ Colorado meet the strictest chemical emission standards and are suitable for indoor use, even in sensitive environments.
The UL Environment is a worldwide leading safety and certification organisation, and it’s GREENGUARD Certification Program demands that products meet some of the world’s most rigorous standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds for indoor environments. The award of this certification to Océ’s UVgel 460 ink shows that it has met the stringent criteria required.
Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager of Canon, said, “Canon is honoured to be awarded the GREENGUARD Gold Certification by the UL Environment for our UVgel 460 ink technology. This recognition has confirmed that our goal to develop an environmentally conscious solution without compromising the speed, productivity or superb image quality of the Océ Colorado 1650 has been validated.”
The new UVgel ink technology is one of a number of features that make the Océ Colorado stand out from the crowd. Not only does it provide a superb colour gamut, with outstanding colour depth and detail, it also enables the production of high-quality prints in fewer passes with no need for drying time. In combination with the Océ FLXfinish, it delivers outstanding matte or gloss finishing to create the highest quality prints for use in indoor settings. Furthermore, the low level of chemical emissions make the Colorado’s output suitable for health-sensitive environments like schools and hospitals.
The Océ Colorado can be used to produce durable quality prints on a wide range of media, including SAVs, polyester textiles, heat-sensitive materials and plain paper. The UVgel inks are stretchable and flexible, and so provide perfect image stability even when prints are folded, bent and wrapped. Fast output speeds and rapid job turnaround result in shorter lead-times. The Colorado takes two media rolls, with online switching and you can refill the ink while the device is printing – in other words, productivity is maximised. Its low operation cost makes the Colorado one of the most cost-effective printers on the market, with reduced ink usage, low service cost and cost-efficient media.
