Newly Patented Technique Gives NAND Much Needed Boost

Indian based toner manufacturer—NAND ipl—has been granted a USA patent for their unique structured EA polymerised toner technology. It’s being heralded as a significant milestone for the company, as well as the toner manufacturing industry. The same patent is also pending in Europe, Japan, China and Korea.

According to independent UK-based toner technologist and consultant, John Marshall, “this technology allows “structured” polymerised toner particles to be produced in a single manufacturing stage. Whilst there are other technologies that can reproduce the end product, two or more manufacturing stages are necessary, whereas NAND’s requires only one.”

NAND already use their patented technique to ensure the vital waxes in their toners are “directed” towards the centre of each particle where they provide the necessary aid to fusing, while ensuring there is little or none near the surface which can lead to component contamination.

Another unique advantage of their technology is the ability to manufacture “core/shell” particles, again in a single stage; soft polymer is directed into the middle of each particle, whilst a harder polymer can form the shell.

A spokesperson for NAND told RT Media that the company intends to be a front runner in providing aftermarket color solutions to the fast growing core/shell toner supplies arena.
