What is Laser Toner?

Laser toner is a special toner cartridge used in laser printers and some makes and models of copiers. Laser toner is a cassette or cartridge filled with carbon powder combined with special binders, the formula for which varies based on the manufacturer. The powder is printed upon paper and "melted" or fused to the paper via a heat element in the printer or copier. Laser toner is considered the highest quality printing available.

OEM Laser Toner and Aftermarket Laser Toner: Original Equipment Manufacturer or OEM laser toner is made by the manufacturer of the printer or copier. For instance, Epson laser toner is used in Epson laser printers. Aftermarket laser toner is made by a third-party manufacturer, and compatible with the brand-name printer or copier. Aftermarket laser toner can be considered "generic" laser toner, but the cartridges or cassettes can print just as many pages as the brand-name, and meets the same quality requirements as the original manufacturer. PrinterInkRefills.com carries a full line of discount laser toner from manufacturers like Canon, IBM, Epson, Hewlett Packard (HP) and more.

Laser Toner Spills, Stains and Safety

Be careful with laser toner. If you spill the fine powder laser toner, you can wash it off your skin with cold water. Do not use warm water, however, as the heat will make it bind to your skin. It will not hurt, but it will take awhile to wear off. Some abrasive hand soaps can remove the toner. If you get toner on your clothing it will most likely bind to the clothing and stain permanently.

Laser toner spilled on the floor or inside of a machine should not be vacuumed with a household vacuum. This is because laser toner is charged with electrostatic charges and could ignite the dust particles within a vacuum cleaner and cause a fire. Again, do not vacuum up laser toner with a household vacuum, it could start a fire. To clean a laser toner spill, use a special vacuum cleaner that is labeled Electrostatic Discharge Safe (ESD-safe). An ESD-safe vacuum cleaner will effectively and safely clean laser toner.
