Using Toners in Printers

The following is made in lieu of all other express or implied warranties, including any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose or implied warranty arising out of a course of dealing, custom or usage of trade: all 3M products are warranted to be free of defects in materials and manufacture at the time of shipment and to meet the specifications stated in this Product Bulletin. 3M will replace or refund the price of any 3M materials that do not meet this warranty within the specified time periods. These remedies are exclusive. In no case shall 3M be liable for any direct, indirect, or consequential damages, including any labor or non-3M materials charges.

See the 3M Graphics Market Center Warranty Brochure at 3Mgraphics.com, which gives the terms, additional limitations of the warranty, if any, and limitations of liability.

Refer to the Product Bulletin for the base film you are using for all graphic construction options and warranties.

Carefully follow all instructions in the Instruction Bulletins. Processing conditions can affect the durability of the toner.

To ensure performance for durability and maintain the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty (where offered), the toners should be printed at or above the following minimum reflective optical densities.













The date of manufacture is noted on both the bottle and box as a 5 digit number with a date code of YMMDD. For example, 90728 means July 28, 2009. The manufacturing lot number is a 7 or 8 digit number.

Use toner premix or concentrates within 36 months of the date of manufacture. Toners older than 36 months may not have optimal printing performance.

For graphics covered by the 3M MCS warranty, 3M will warrant their durability when printed with toners older than 36 months if the minimum print densities are maintained.

Store the toner in its original container, tightly sealed, out of direct sunlight and at 40° to 100°F (4° to 38°C).

Toners may be regulated for shipping. In the United States, toners are not regulated for ground shipment. They are, however, regulated for air shipments and should not be shipped by air without proper documentation. Opened toner bottles (foil seal broken) no longer meet UN packaging guidelines and cannot be shipped air without special UN ap­ proved over packing containers.

Cleaners and thinners 8970, 8791 and 8792 should be used within 5 years of the date of manufacture.

Refer to the user's guides and manuals supplied with your printer for additional details on how to install and use toners in your printer.

The processing of four-color, electrostatically printed graphics requires careful preparation. Detailed instructions and procedures are contained in the user's guides supplied with your printer.

Toner premixes are shipped as two-part combo packs to improve shelf life. They require mixing prior to use. For optimum printing results, mix the toners at least 8 hours before using and then use these mixed toners as soon as possible. Put mixed toners into the printer within one month of mixing.
