In the past 3 years, it is reported by the distributor of HYB that more and more unqualified compatible toner cartridges are entering the market in Israel.
The treats from unqualified compatibles are mainly affecting 2 parts of cycle in our life:
- The unknown sourcing raw material for production of single-use plastic which contains "Excessive DecaBDE”. This has been very offen reported to the new compatible products from several different supplierswho offered cheap toner cartridges to the market; surprisingly few of them belonged to huge size company who make revenue of 60 million + dollars per year.
Policy makers of different countries are starting to ban single-use plastic products such as straws, plastic bags, cotton swabs and plastic cutlery. Furthermore, those cartridges made of cheap raw material plastic contains Toxic elements that affects lives and Ecosystems.
HYB concerns a lot about cartridges their products and is big supporter of manufacturing high quality cartridges only with safe raw material.
All material from our suppliers have to go through a series of testing especially designed for plastic products such as standard GB/T 1033, 3682, 3398, 9341, 1040, 1634, 1843 and we make sure of the index of Hexavalent Chromium, Total Bromine, Cadmium, Mercury and Pb are in line with the standard.
2.Toner filled into cartridges that damage the life time of the spare parts in the machine sometimes even failed during printings. The competition becomes harder in the past few years to the extent that some distributors start to compete only with price because this is a faster “SHORTCUT” to reach their customer.
Furthermore, the consumption of toner and capacity of production from each gram of toner made by HYB are also factors that are highly concerned in the R and D of HYB.
HYB do NOT believe in “ SHORTCUT” as this is not the right principle they stick to since they founded and grow from 1998.
We all know that dealers for copier machines, toner, parts are quality oriented customers who don’t just wholesale but also offer service and charge for their service. These unqualified but cheap toner cartridges are directly adding up their expenses of labors, transportation, repairs, replacement parts. It forces some of their customers return to the O.E.M and some of them back to premium quality compatible toner such as HYB products.
HYB implement a high standard on the quality of their products and compare each formula they apply to fill into cartridges with performance of the O.E.M
The believers of same quality concept, such as COPY 1 ( HYB exclusive distributor in Israel ) are uniting their dealers to follow the same concept and say NO to any unqualified compatible toner come to their hands. They are united to build a healthier environment for premium quality toner with intention to keep the industry safe to grow sustainable.
