Storage Advice for Toner Cartridges

When it comes to storing toner, there are some important points to keep in mind. Although toner powder consists of polyester powder, natural dyes such as yellow, magenta and cyan, and possibly kerosene to give the prints a glossy effect, it also contains chemical additives, such as a component to make the toner magnetic in the case of single-component toner, or very fine iron powder to make the toner magnetic in the case of two-component toner.

Temperature plays a crucial role in preventing clumping in toner. Especially extremely high temperatures can negatively affect the structure of toner and even cause irreparable damage. The ideal storage temperature is between 10 and 25 degrees Celsius.

When storing two-component toner, it is very important to store it horizontally. This prevents the heavier carrier (fine iron powder) from sinking to the bottom of the toner. Therefore, it is essential to properly shake toner cartridges after a long period of downtime or upon installation.

By following these storage tips, you can preserve the quality and performance of your toner cartridges and ensure they are ready for use when you need them.
