Why choose Kyocera genuine toner?

Only genuine Kyocera toner guarantees print quality, environmental standards and product life.

Kyocera has spent decades developing technologies that consistently deliver lower running costs than our competitors. Toner is not a “one size fits all” consumable and there is only one supplier who can deliver the quality, economy and reliability you expect when you purchase a Kyocera device.​

Reduce waste with Kyocera genuine toner​​

Choosing Kyocera can mean producing up to 85% less electronic waste during the life of the dev​ice thanks to Kyocera te​chnology. Kyocera devices produce significantly less waste because the ECOSYS concept does not involve the replacement of the photoconductor drum and developer unit when the toner runs out. ​

For example: an average competitor’s toner container includes 60 separately manufactured components, while an original Kyocera toner cassette includes just four.​​

Benefits of using our genuine toner

Non-original toner can jeopardise the benefits you receive with your KYOCERA product and turn out to be much more expensive than you thought.

    Economy and cost-saving targets

    Your business can save money with genuine toner. Original Kyocera toners are independently tested to deliver a specific number of pages and this may not be the case for non-original toners.

    Health safety

    Kyocera toner does not contain harmful substances such as mercury, cadmium, lead and nickel, Chromium VI compounds, dyes that might release carcinogenic particles.

  • 03
    Device health

    Document quality

    The high image quality are linked to the size and accurate shape of individual toner particles. Non-original toner particles may be too large or poorly shaped to deliver the same quality.
