The surface coating of the OPC drum is easily damaged. Improper handling increases risk of OPC drum damage. During OPC drum removal and installation  do not hit the surface of the OPC drum with hard objects.  Print defects, spots or lines on the printed page, can be caused by sweat and oil contamination on the OPC drum coating.  Do not touch the OPC Drum coating.  Handle the OPC drum by holding the gear or bare metal surface.
