Static Control Releases Chemical Toner for the HP 8500, Multi-Tracker Optra T/Se Chip and Dedicated Lexmark Chips
SANFORD, N.C. - Static Control Components (SCC) recently introduced the
first aftermarket chemical toner for the HP 8500. The dedicated HP 8500
toner - the result of more than two years of development in chemical toner
technology - addresses performance issues experienced with substitute
toners, such as incorrect fusing characteristics and high toner usage.
SCC's dedicated HP 8500 toner solves many of the
problems remanufacturers have experienced with other non-dedicated HP 8500
toners. With the HP 8500 toner, the wax is encapsulated into the toner particles
and the toner particles are more uniformly spherical. Both of these
characteristics provide improved fusing with sharper images and better color
'Static Control is always working to create
better toner solutions,' said Paul Rossi, Static Control’s director of imaging
materials development. 'And with the release of more color laser printers, there
is a growing demand for aftermarket chemical toner solutions. The research and
development that SCC put into the HP 8500 chemical toner laid the groundwork for
future product development. The next generation of color laser printers is
around the corner and with the release of the HP 8500 chemical toner, Static
Control has demonstrated its ability to rise to the new technology
SCC also recently released the
Multi-Tracker Optra T/Se chip. This dedicated, multi-use chip provides
remanufacturers an easy-to-use chip solution for high-yield cartridges and is
guaranteed for three cycles. For convenience, a replacement high-yield encoder
wheel is included with each chip to complete the
'This Multi-Tracker chip provides SCC
customers with a multi-use chip solution for the Optra T and Se cartridges,'
said Michael Cox, Static Control product manager. 'Working with these cartridges
becomes more efficient and profitable because remanufacturers now have a chip
that allows them to know exactly what the status of the chip
In addition, SCC has released dedicated chips
for the Lexmark T520 and T620. These new chips enable remanufacturers to include
the profitable T520 and T620 cartridges in their business. The easy-to-use chip
is guaranteed for one cycle and comes with replacement high-yield encoder wheel
The new T520 and T620 chips have
been configured to work with the T520/522 and T620/622 high-yield cartridges.
The chip board has been designed to match OEM specifications, so it fits neatly
into position for optimal electrical connection. The positioning of the chip is
also important because it protects the chip components from outside influences,
such as bumping or end-user interference.
