Both Resolute and Image armor were very helpful, but it ended with me going back to DuPont,

The issue I think is more to do with the old Tech with my Fast T-jet2 and epson head.

Ive gone gone over to using using a Brother GT-381 and as soon as my inks are depleted hope to try the new B-series Image armor inks ...
Generally speaking the inks that clog more are actually better inks. More pigment and more binder=more clogs.
Ink system maintenance is based on the ink used, not on what the printer manufacturer recommends for the standard ink.

I wipe the nozzle plate after around x number of prints (depends on the humidity), and flush all the colors every week. I used to do it every 2 weeks and I was getting some clogs, but with the weekly schedule it is now a rare occurrence.

I agree however in my case with The T-Jet 2 it wasnt even getting through 1 print before clogging ... I had fitted a new printhead, carts, pipes and capping station
