What is toner powder?

Toner powder is used for printing and found inside the cartridges used for laser printers and copiers.

Is all toner powder the same? Is toner powder universal?

Some aftermarket toner with low PPM (Page Per Minute) printers may seem universal, but after certain amount of printing, you will find out that universal toner will accelerate the wear of other printer components, as they are not made specifically for that printer model.

It is better to use the correct designated remanufacturing toner powder for the right printer model, as this would not damage and/or accelerate the wear of the other components.

Universal toner powder may seem cheaper, but it might be more costly as it will require replacing the other components of the printer more often due to the damage and / or acceleration of wear.

So toner powders are different due to factors like different PPM, melting points, charge, manufacturers, etc.
