Abstract

A method o.f.forming permanent toner images on substrates such as cloth,, wood, plastic sheets or leather is disclosed. A colored toner image Is electrophotographically formed on an abhesive coated fleet by w conventional COpier such as the Xerox 65OO- The toner image may then be transferred by heat to,form with an interposed polymeric or plasticizing sheet a permanent image on cloth, the interposed sheet material com-prises a layer of material which promotes transfer and ad-herenqe of toner tO cloth under heat and pressure but formS, a sheet at ordinary temperatures. The polymeric or plasti-cizing material may be applied directly to the toner image formed on the abhesive coated substrate or may be placed on the cloth and the Image, bearing surface brought. into face-to-face contact therewith and adhered to the cloth by heat and pressure,

A method o.f.forming permanent toner images on substrates such
as cloth,, wood, plastic sheets or leather is disclosed. A
colored toner image Is electrophotographically formed on an
abhesive coated fleet by w conventional COpier such as the
Xerox 65OO~ The toner image may then be transferred by heat
to,form with an interposed polymeric or plasticizing sheet a
permanent image on cloth, the interposed sheet material com-
prises a layer of material which promotes transfer and ad-
herenqe of toner tO cloth under heat and pressure but formS,
a sheet at ordinary temperatures. The polymeric or plasti-
cizing material may be applied directly to the toner image
formed on the abhesive coated substrate or may be placed on
the cloth and the Image, bearing surface brought. into face-to-
face contact therewith and adhered to the cloth by heat and
pressure,

The interposed sheet may be formed of any suitable polymeric
material that serves to transfer and bind the~toner material
into the cloth under beat and pressure. Such a matérial
ordinarily will plasticize and be compatible with theresin
of the toner when both are fluidized by heat. The interposed
sheet further is selected so that it becomes flowable at a
temperature compatible with the melting temperature of the
toner which is used. The interposed sheet ordinarily is
colorless so as not to detract from the tOner mater...
