New OCP photo inks released for Canon CLI-8 PC and PM cartridges
In addition to the Cyan, Yellow and Magenta color inks for Canon´s CLI-8 cartridges, which are available since beginning of May, also the Cyan and Magenta photo inks for the CLI-8 PC and CLI-8 PM cartridges are released now. These are currently required for the printer models Pixma iP 6600D, Pixma MP 950 and the from fall 2006 available Pixma Pro 9000.
All CLI-8 cartridges contain an intelligent chip which i.e. stores ink level information (see OCP Customer Information 02-17-06 dated May, 1st 2006).
Alternative chips are not available from any supplier world-wide and will not be available till end of 2006.
The OCP´s inks for the CLI-8 cartridges are approved to have the same light fastness as the OEM Canon inks of the “Chromalife100” Technology. Furthermore, OCP´s inks for this Canon printer generation are successfully tested to be suitable for more than 20 times refill of the OEM ink cartridges. OCP inks are neutral to the OEM foams, don´t block them or chemically react with the OEM foam material. With OCP inks the OEM tank cartridges can be refilled multiple times, as long as they do not show mechanical damages of the tank or chip. Further details about the handling of refilled CLI-8 cartridges can be obtained from OCP´s Service Information No. 11.
