Static Control Is First to Market With PhotoPrecise Chemical Toner for the HP 4500
SANFORD, N.C. — Static Control recently introduced the
first aftermarket chemical toner for the HP 4500 — the result of more
than two years of development in chemical toner technology.
Available in cyan, yellow and magenta, this new HP 4500
PhotoPrecise™ chemical toner emulates the OEM in
density, yield, color transfer rates and color fidelity. The
release of this product provides remanufacturers with an increased opportunity
to penetrate the current OEM HP 4500 market.
With the HP 4500 PhotoPrecise chemical 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 mixing. SCC’s HP 4500 chemical toner also
resolves toner usage issues and significantly reduces dusting in the printer.
Chemical toner technology produces round toner particles
that are more uniform in size than traditional pulverized toners. This size
uniformity improves print performance. The roundness of chemical toner creates
good toner flow and release properties. Both the shape and narrow range of
toner particle size also means more uniform charging of the toner.
“Static Control continues to develop better toner
solutions,” said Paul Rossi, Static Control 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 timing is right
for remanufacturers to take advantage of existing printer placement and obtain
a greater market penetration with HP 4500.”
