  • Differences Between Dry and Liquid Toner

What are the key differences between a dry and liquid toner?

Toners are used in digital electrophotographic printers such as laser printers, copiers, and digital presses, and can print on either coated or uncoated papers.

Dry toners consist of pigments embedded inside polymer beads. The fusing phase of the electrophotographic process melts the polymer beads to the surface of the paper. Dry toners are used in the many desktop, office, and engineering copier systems that use uncoated papers

Liquid toners also use pigments in polymer beads, but they are dispersed in an oil that evaporates during the fusing process. Liquid toners are used in digital presses that are typically used for commercial printing on a wide range of coated papers.
