1.General Information:
The listed substrates have been tested at Konica Minolta Media Evaluation Centers according to evaluation standards defined by Konica Minolta, Inc. Japan. The certification is focusing on image output quality, substrate feed and transport ability. For more details, customers may contact the media supplier or their local Konica Minolta organization.

2.Supplementary information:
It should be noted that the composition or nature of the tested substrate is sometimes subject to manufacturer's changes. The substrate recommendations, therefore, always refer to the nature of the product used during the mentioned test period. Konica Minolta is strongly recommending that customers print a small number of sheets prior to production to confirm whether it meets the required quality or not. It should be considered that coated, pre-printed, hammered or textured papers and non-paper substrates (e.g. carbonless papers, adhesive, labels, PE, polyester and PVC films) - especially when used on a large scale or over a longer period – can trigger chemical and / or thermal processes in the printing system, which may cause a defect or premature wear of certain components. If a print system will be used primarily or exclusively for this purpose, this is at the sole risk and responsibility of the customer. Any function or quality losses associated with it do not constitute a defect of the printing system, unless Konica Minolta has tested the critical print medium - and if necessary - for a given volume per time unit released for use.

3.Warranty and Liability
If the listed substrate is used outside of the particular test conditions or in disregard of the above "Supplementary information", no warranty or claims for damages against Konica Minolta can be derived from the present substrate recommendations. In case of print quality and feedability issues caused by operations beyond the respective product description of the machine, paper or print data, Konica Minolta does not give any performance guarantees or warranties for the listed substrates.
