Quality printing is the lifeblood of many businesses, but finding the right printers and printer supplies can be a real hassle. With so many brands of printers all claiming to the best, it can be quite hard for the average business owner to sort out the hype from the reality. One thing that is true, however, is that using the right toner, fuser and other printer consumables is one of the best ways to increase the reliability of the printer and help it last longer. Top-quality toner also helps the printer increase its printing capacity, yielding more printouts per cartridge and keeping downtime to a minimum.
In fact, many common printer problems, from jammed paper to prematurely worn rollers, can be caused or exacerbated by poor quality printer consumables. From low-quality paper whose rough texture can make printer rollers old before their time to improperly packaged generic toner that can leak and cause streaks and other output problems, what you put in your laser printer greatly influences what comes out.
Printer toner is important, especially for the laser printer. What’s the function of the toner in the printer? Toner is used to forming the text and images on the paper.

To make the toner, the plant-derived plastic or petroleum plastic is used. Then, the chemical compounds are mixed and melted by using heat. After that, the toner is bonded to the paper.
Sometimes, the toner can be leaked to the skin or garment during the handling process. However, the people don’t need to worry since the toner can be washed off from skin and garments easily. People can use cold water to clean toner from skin and garments. However, if toner is fused to the clothes, then it will be hard to be washed off. However, if the toner is spilt to the laser printer, it should be cleaned by the special tool that is toner vacuums.
