Abstract

A process for development of electrostatic latent images on a substrate with microwave~fusible toner compositions and fusing the toner compositions with microwave electromagnetic energy is described. Conventional techniques are~used to image a suitable electrostatographic photoreceptor. The latent image on the photoreceptor is then developed with toners which can be quickly fused by microwave electromagnetic energy. The toners are based upon carbon black filled polyesters, for example, polyhexamethylene sebacate; polycaprolactone; HQE terephthalate/propylene terephthalate; or polypropylene terephthalate. The developed image is transferred to a suitable substrate, for example, paper, metal, transparent film, glass and the like, and the substrate bearing the developed image is subjected to microwave energy supplied by a slotted wave guide microwave generator. The foregoing classes of carbon black filled polyester~basedtoners fused at various transit times, and the fused toners adhered well to paper substrates.

A process for development of electrostatic latent images
on a substrate with microwave~fusible toner compositions and
fusing the toner compositions with microwave electromagnetic
energy is described.

Conventional techniques are~used to image a suitable
electrostatographic photoreceptor. The latent image on the
photoreceptor is then developed with toners which can be
quickly fused by microwave electromagnetic energy. The
toners are based upon carbon black filled polyesters, for
example, polyhexamethylene sebacate; polycaprolactone; HQE
terephthalate/propylene terephthalate; or polypropylene
terephthalate. The developed image is transferred to a
suitable substrate, for example, paper, metal, transparent
film, glass and the like, and the substrate bearing the
developed image is subjected to microwave energy supplied
by a slotted wave guide microwave generator. The foregoing
classes of carbon black filled polyester~basedtoners fused
at various transit times, and the fused toners adhered well
to paper substrates.
