Laser Toner Cartridge Trivia

Here are some laser toner cartridge concepts and facts.

Toner is a powder made from a mixture of carbon, polymer, and a color agent. This powder mixture is contained in a toner cartridge, usually made of plastic, which is inserted into a laser or LED printer for printing.

Toner formulations vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and even from machine to machine. However to achieve efficiency, technology found ways to create universal laser toner cartridges that are compatible to various machines.

Toner particle is melted by the heat of the fuser and is binded to the paper with a photoconductor (drum cartridge).

Some cartridge designs incorporate the drum cartridge into the toner cartridges, combining both parts into a single unit. Other toner cartridges have a separate drum unit such as Brother toner cartridges.

Toner cartridge page yield is the number of pages that it will be expected to print. This number is based on 5% coverage, which means that for the average page, 5% of the output will be covered in toner after printing.
