Toner Life and Warranty

Regarding the life expectancy of printed documents using KYOCERA Document Solutions Printer and toners, as yet no information is available about how long laser printed output will last, mainly because laser printers have only been around for a relatively short time. We can however make recommendations with regards to prolonging the life of laser documents, these are as follows.

  • Acid-free papers (pH 7.5-8.5) are better suited for documents intended to be stored for long periods e.g. wills, rather than normal laser paper and recycled papers (pH 4.0-5,5)
  • the documents should be stored in folders made of polypropylene or polyethylene rather than PVC
  • KYOCERA Document Solutions printers fuse at a higher temperature than most other laser printers, this will increase the durability of documents.

The use of non-KYOCERA  original toner is likely to cause print quality issues and ultimately, damage to the printer. Such issues or damage would not be covered under your printer warranty.
