It should be made clear that all laser printers use normal copier paper (70gsm) for calibration and testing.

          Manufacturers of recycled toner cartridges and producers of laser printing photo paper also compare the printed color of the test page and the printed color of ordinary copier paper.

          The images you choose to test the printing quality are also important.  Laser printing can produce prints with very good depth of field, which inkjet printer or dot-matrix printer cannot.

          The settings of a laser printer should also take into account the weight (thickness) of the paper used.

          Usually, you can change the "type of paper" in the printer settings.

          The user manuals and specifications of your printer will inform you of the various effects on different types of paper.

          Usually, the heavier the paper, the slower the printing speed.  If your printer is set to print 4 to 5, 8, 16 or 20 pages per minute, the default setting is probably ordinary copier paper.

          When you use heavier (thicker) paper, the color saturation of the printouts will be affected. The thicker the paper, the lighter the color, so the brightness of the color will make it less suitable for photo prints (Ordinary photos are about 180 to 220 gsm).

          Another key issue is the high temperature. During the laser printing process, for the toner to stick onto the surface of a piece of paper, the temperature needs to reach 200 degrees Celsius.

          When you use thicker paper, you need to consider if the coating on the surface will melt due to the high temperature.  If you are not cautious enough, the roller could be damaged.

          It could cost you nearly 10,000 NTD to replace the roller and you can probably buy a new printer with that amount of money.  In short, it is very important for users to find suitable paper for their laser printer.


          In the food industry, GMP is an important label for manufacturing good food.

          Similarly, an eco-label is the government's manufacturing standards for green products.When a product has met all the criteria, the EPA will issue a code number along with the eco-label for the product.

          In short, the code number of the eco-label is the ID of the product.What does it mean when a green toner cartridge comes with an eco-label?

           1. Free of toxins: No toxic chemicals like mercury, lead, cadmium, selenium and hexavalent chrome are found in the toner.

           2. The reference yields meet the government standards.

           3. The printing quality meets the government standards.

           4. The quality has been approved by the government.




          All CyberTek toner cartridges use cartridges recycled from the ones made by brand name manufacturers, so the recycled cartridges will definitely fit the printers and will not cause any damage to the printers.

          Low-price toner cartridges imported by unscrupulous vendors from China are counterfeits made illegally by companies in China, so the specification may differ from that of the cartridges made by brand name manufacturers.In other words, using these cartridges may damage your printer.

          How to tell whether a toner cartridge is a recycled toner cartridge or a counterfeit?   

          The best way is to choose toner cartridges with eco-labels.  Consumers are entitled to ask the vendors to provide the code number of the eco-label.   

          You can then verify the code number on the website of eco-labels: Greenliving of the EPA, Executive Yuan. It can protect your right as a consumer.

          What is the difference between a recycled toner cartridge and a refillable toner cartridge?

          A recycled toner cartridge uses the empty cartridge that is manufactured by the printer manufacturer.     

          The cartridge is recycled, sorted, cleaned, repaired, reassembled, tested and re-packaged.

          In other words, we make use of the plastic components and non-consumable parts of the empty cartridge, and add consumable parts (such as photoconductive drum and scraper), high-quality toner and new package.

          The products from CyberTek come with eco-labels; they have been certified by ISO9001, STMC and SGS.  The product testing procedures also follow the strict procedures of ASTM, so the printing quality can be guaranteed.    

          Refillable toner cartridges require users to purchase and refill toner and replace the chips.  Consumable parts of the cartridges (such as photoconductive drum and scraper) are kept, so it is possible that the toner may leak and the printing quality may be poor.  Sometimes, it can damage the printer.


           CyberTek has received multiple certificates, so our customers can use certified recycled toner cartridges.     

          ISO9001 certification

              ISO (International Organization for Standardization) quality management system is a customer-oriented quality management system that focuses on workflow monitoring and supervision, and strives for continuous improvement.

           STMC certification

              STMC(Standardized Test Methods Committee) uses the following national standards to specify the basic criteria for cartridge for quality assurance, including reference yields, image density, background and package.

              ISTA 1A -- International Safe Transit Association testing procedures for package

              ASTM F1856 -- Standard practice for determining toner usage for printer cartridges

              ASTM F2036 -- Standard test method for evaluation of larger area density and background on electrophotographic printers

           SGS testing

              SGS tests to see if a product contains lead, mercury, hexavalent chrome, cadmium, PBB/PBDE.


              ASTM is one of the world's largest international standards developing organizations, providing the public with trustworthy technical standards related to materials, products, systems and services.ASTM standards are known to combine market relevance with the highest technical quality and provide guidance for design, manufacturing and trade of various products in the worlds.

              ASTM plays an important role in IT infrastructure.   CyberTek follows the strict testing procedures of ASTM F1856 and ASTM F2036 to test our recycled toner cartridges.




          It is all right to print photos using ordinary copier paper, but the quality of the photo will not be very good because the paper is not thick enough.  Generally speaking, color laser printers use ordinary copier paper (60 to 80gsm) for calibration and design. If the paper is thicker (a traditional photo paper is 180gsm), the color saturation will be affected.

          It is generally recommended to use glossy inkjet photo paper or premium paper to print photos in a laser printer.  However, you will need to take the high temperature into consideration.  During the laser printing process, the temperature of the laser printer can reach 200 degrees Celsius.  When you use thicker paper, the coating on the surface may melt or be damaged due to the high temperature. When you use slow printing (using papers thicker than 80 to 100 gsm), it is likely that the coating will melt, and the roller could be damaged. Hence, it is usually not recommended to use inkjet photo paper in a laser printer.
