Avery Dennison™ MPI products will provide acceptable image quality when used with the
recommended OEM inks and select 3rd party inks when noted with an X in the preceding charts.
The following information is based on tests believed to be reliable. This information is given without
guarantee and does not constitute a warranty.
The purchaser should independently determine, prior to use, the suitability of the material for his/her
specific purpose.
2.0 Warranty Coverage
All Avery Dennison materials qualify for our Materials Warranty. For more detailed warranty information
(i.e. specific material, printer and application warranties) please contact your Avery Dennison Sales
Representative.
2.1 Compatible
Avery Graphics will guarantee the product to be free from defects in material and workmanship for one
year from the date of shipment as long as the product is properly stored and applied. Printer/ink
combinations that have been checked as compatible have been tested for printability and ink adhesion
only. Any issues related to printability should be addressed with the printer or ink manufacturer.
2.2 ICS PG
This is a warranty program that recognizes the mutual effort between Avery Graphics and specific printer,
ink, and clear coat manufacturers to determine graphics performance expectations. Avery and their
partners do the legwork so the graphics manufacturer does not have to. The ICS Performance
Guarantee is available for a variety of proven printer, ink, media combinations, and specifically addresses

expected outdoor durability with allowance for various types of graphics protection (film overlaminate
and/or liquid clear coat).
Participation does not require qualification or registration. Any graphics manufacturer utilizing qualified
components and equipment has their Avery Digital Imaging Media covered in the event that the product
does not perform as expected.
2.3 ICS Fleet
This is a warranty program, designed for long-term fleet graphics applications, that also recognizes the
mutual effort between Avery Graphics and specific printer, ink, and clearcoat manufacturers to determine
graphics performance expectations. Avery Graphics and their partners have identified exactly which
components and processes are necessary to produce the best possible long-term fleet graphics.
The ICS Fleet Warranty is only available to select graphics manufacturers who demonstrate strict control
over their processes and utilize ICS approved components and equipment. Qualification is required.
This warranty is attractive to fleet owners and operators as it covers all of potential exposure should the
graphics fail to perform as expected.
Graphics manufacturers must make a request to their Avery sales personnel, or the sales personnel of
their authorized Avery distributor, to begin the process. Information required at the time of the request will
include specific digital printer make and model to be qualified, ink series used, and target volume of film
purchases for warranted fleet applications.
As part of the qualification process, the printer must agree to allow Avery technical personnel direct
machine access for 3-4 hours to run Avery film products (provided by Avery at Avery expense), as well as
open access to related processes within the shop. Avery reserves the right to charge for this
qualification, but any such charge will be rebated in a material credit upon purchase of a reasonable
amount of Avery Digital Imaging Media products.

4.0 General Information on Durability
Applying an overlaminate or clear coat to graphic images provides depth, protection, and various gloss
levels for the image and is a necessary step in the production of a finished digital print.
The durability of the total graphic construction is stated in the following charts. The least durable of the
following items determines the overall durability:
• Ink
• Substrate Product
• Overlaminate Film or Clear Coat
5.0 Solvent Inkjet Outdoor Durability
• Reference Digital Media Selector for Durability of all MPI films
•
Reference Instructional Bulletin #1.30 for durability guidelines
6.0 Troubleshooting
Problem
Ink runs at edge of media
Ink not drying
Possible Cause
Wavy edges / media lifting from
platen or drum at edge
Post/Drying heat too low.
Solution
Make sure media is loaded straight.
On machines with a vacuum platen or drum, make
sure the holes are not filled with ink.
Move print heads away from media. This will reduce
sharpness of image but may fix problem.
Store media vertically. Allows media to settle
causing edges to be flush with the core.
Shop conditions should be in recommended range
for material being used. See specific Product Data
Bulletin for material being used.
If using a drum printer, use material on 6.0” (15.2
cm) core.
Adjust temperature. See chart in section 2 for
recommended starting points.
Section 5 – Digital Technology Information
Instructional Bulletin
Page 8 of 10
averygraphics.com
AnswerLine: 800-231-4654
Problem
Ink mottle
Possible Cause
Pre-heat temperature too low.
Incorrect ICC profile or FM table (on
Scitex drum printers).
Poor print quality
Contamination on material face.
Pre-heat temperature too low.
Clogged print heads
Pre-heat temperature too high.
Media is loading incorrectly
Print heads dirty.
Media is wrinkled or wavy when
loaded onto printer.
Media not flat on the platen or
drum.
Not using MPI materials.
Media is not loaded correctly.
Media is not unloading properly
on drum printers.
Horizontal Banding
Media is sticking to the drum.
Unload speed of drum is faster than
transfer conveyer.
Clogged nozzle
Print speed
Ink not compatible with Avery media
Solution
Adjust temperature. See chart in section 2 for
recommended starting points.
Download correct ICC profile from
www.digital.averygraphics.com .
For Scitex drum printer select different FM table.
Use table created for media being used.
Use isopropyl alcohol to clean all drive rollers that
come in contact with the material face.
Adjust temperature. See chart in section 2 for
recommended starting points.
Lower temperature setting. See chart in section 2
for recommended starting points.
Clean print heads.
On Scitex Drum printers, make sure MPI products on
6” core are being used. (The MPI products are
specifically designed for loading onto the Idanit
printer.)
Cover unused vacuum holes with a low tack
premask. This will increase vacuum on holes that
are in use.
On machines with a vacuum platen or drum, make
sure the holes are not filled with ink.
Make sure that material is evenly tensioned.
Make sure the appropriate MPI products are being
used.
Make sure that material is evenly tensioned and
loaded straight on the printer.
Lower the drum temperature. Standard setting is 34.
Lower drum unloading speed or increase transfer
conveyer speed.
Clean affected print head. It may be necessary to
replace the head.
Follow maintenance and adjustment procedures to
ensure the print head is in good condition. This will
reduce risk of nozzle drop out.
Switch from bidirectional to unidirectional printing.
Bidirectional printing, although typically faster than
unidirectional, is more prone to banding. This is due
to the fact that dots are dropped from the carriage as
it moves both left and right, creating differing dot
angles.
Be sure to use quality inks. If the OEM ink is not
being used, reference section 3 of this document for
3rd party inks that have been tested with Avery digital
media.

AnswerLine: 800-231-4654
Problem
Horizontal Banding
Possible Cause
Material wound too loosely or
uneven tension across web
Too much or too little heat
Tension
Roller marks appearing on
media
The appearance of pinch roller
marks on media is usually due to
static electricity on the media.
Paper sticking to Flag material
Too much pre or print heat
Solution
Material wound loosely or unevenly will cause
slippage and generally you will find banding, many
times more prevalent on one side of the media than
the other.
Make sure media is fed straight through the printer.
If media is not straight uneven tension can be
created.
Too much heat can cause the ink to dry in the heads
and clog nozzles.
Too little heat can cause other print defects such as
fisheyes or speckles.
Too much tension may cause incorrect stepping of
the media resulting in banding.
Clean the pinch rollers with Isopropyl Alcohol - use a
sparing amount as this can create marks as well (the
IPA is absorbed into the roller and is 'squeezed' out
over a period of time).
Turn down the vacuum level on the platen - this may
reduce the amount of static.
Make sure carriage height is as low as possible less flight time for print drops means less time to be
effected by static charges.
Use a lower pressure setting for holding the media in
the pinch point of the printer - reduces the
opportunity for physically 'denting' the media.
Humidify the work area to 30% to 40% RH - lessens
the potential for static electricity generation.
The onset of drier conditions in winter usually
generates issues for some customers.
Print and pre heat temperature should not exceed
92-95 F otherwise paper will stick.
