Smaller and uniform toner particles produce sharper images and lines.

Introduction

Improve print quality with polymerized toner

Businesses need high-quality laser printing that is also cost efficient. Conventional laser printer toner often produces low quality prints with high energy and materials costs.

Businesses rely on laser printing for print quality and efficiency. Polymerized toner provides: • • • • • •

Samsung polymerized toner uses small uniform particles that are grown in water through a chemical reaction called aggregation. This process produces sharper images and lines, and higher wax content improves image gloss and durability of prints to protect against folds and smudges. In addition, the thinner and more uniform layer produced by the process results in less waste and a lower fusing temperature that requires less energy.

High image quality Gloss and color improvement Reduced power consumption Reduced paper curling Increased durability Rediced consumable size

These advantages, in addition to an eco-friendly manufacturing process, make Samsung polymerized toner the ideal solution for quality-driven and environmentally conscious businesses.

Polymerized Toner

This white paper outlines how polymerized toner significantly improves the overall quality of print output, increases the efficiency of the printing process and reduces printing power consumption.

Small, uniform, round toner particles

High image quality The smaller, uniformly distributed spherical particles that make up polymerized toner produce better image resolution and color accuracy than larger, asymmetrical conventional toner particles.

Pigment

Gloss and color gamut range improvement

Emulsion

Individual particles contain functional ingredients, including wax and pigment. These ingredients along with the core and shell structure improve the gloss and color gamut (range of colors available). The uniform particles are the result of aggregation.

Latex Wax

Aggregation

Less power consumption Polymerized toner produces a much thinner and uniform layer creating increased transfer efficiency. Therefore, printers produce less toner waste and require a lower fusing temperature than that of printers that use conventional toner. This lower fusing temperature reduces power consumption.

The fusing process requires lower temperatures.

Reduced paper curl

Reduced toner cartridge size

Paper curl is caused by the thickness of the fused and waxed layers of toner that are produced. The polymerized toner fused layer is 20 percent thinner and the wax layer is half as thick as conventional toner layers. This reduction in thickness of layers results in a significant decrease in paper curl as seen in figure 2, that reduces the amount of paper jams, and in turn, reduces waste.

Polymerized toner uses smaller particles and provides outstanding transfer efficiency. These features allow for smaller toner cartridges and thus smaller printer hardware. Packaging for smaller consumables and hardware lowers the cost of shipping and logistics. Smaller-sized hardware also increases the amount of available office space.

Eco-friendly manufacturing process The process of manufacturing polymerized toner is much more efficient, using an average of 35 percent less electricity during production than conventional toner. This energyefficient manufacturing process reduces CO2 emissions and further supports Samsung’s commitment to protect the environment.

Increased durability When laser printed sheets are folded or stored, they can show some wear. This wear can be caused by an inferior fusing process or the thickness of fused layers. Because the fusing process of polymerized toner is much improved and thinner, due to smaller toner particles and increased conformity, the durability of print outputs is greatly increased as well.

Polymerized toner enhances overall image quality.

Compare polymerized toner to conventional toner

Conclusion With Samsung polymerized toner, businesses can achieve the superior print quality they require while reducing power consumption and material usage.

The following table compares models using polymerized and conventional toner, including the focus areas of image gamut, image text, toner waste, package size and power consumption. Focus area

Models using conventional toner

Models using polymerized toner

Image gamut

The mean gloss value is Gm = 4.0.

The color gamut, or range of colors available, shows a 118 percent increase with a mean gloss value of 8.7.

Image text

Text edges can be jagged and imprecise.

Text edges seem crisp with enhanced screen technology.

Toner waste

Layers are thicker with more toner waste and some dust.

Layers are thinner with reduced toner waste and little or no dust.

Package size

Package size is larger because of larger hardware and cartridges.

Hardware is 11 percent smaller and cartridges are 4 per­cent smaller resulting in smaller package sizes.

Power consumption

Power consumption is greater for both ready and sleep modes because of higher temperatures required for the fusing process.

Running power consumption is reduced by 16 percent. Ready mode power consumption is reduced by 59 percent and sleep mode power by 29 percent.
