Abstract

Incorporation of small glass beads into end-of-ribbon marking paint and application of the marking paint to appropriate ribbon section enhances a typist's perception of the marked point due to increased light scatter. The increased scattering effect is produced by a concentration gradient of the beads, which are pretreated with a low energy coating incompatible with the paint resin so that the beads are pushed to the surface of the ribbon as the paint dries.
