Extensive testing has proven that laser printers emit particulate matter. That's why the air quality in some offices is worse than the air in the immediate area of a freeway with average traffic levels. This was one of the findings of Australian physicists at the Queensland University of Technology. The tesa Clean Air fine dust particle filter creates a clean working environment. 70 percent of employees in the USA may be affected. Every day, employees at offices in the USA inhale large quantities of particulate matter emitted by laser printers. When they do so, they may be jeopardizing their long-term health. The latest research findings no longer rule out particulate emissions from laser printers as a health risk. And yet, the percentage of workplaces using laser printers continues to rise. More than 70 percent of US employees now use a laser printer, and 82 percent of them sit just three meters or less away from the device itself.3 What many people don't know is that with every page printed, laser printers emit tiny particles of dust, invisible to the naked eye, that can find their way into the lungs and even the bloodstream. Some models of printers even emit as much particulate pollution as a major traffic artery.
