Abstract

A method Of forming peimanent toner images oft substrates such as cloth, wood, plastic sheets or leather 1,S disclosed • The process begins.by. providing a silicone coated Sheet which is overcoated with •a subbing layer onto which toner is trans-ferred in a copying machine, the toner image Qfl the subbing layer may then be.transferred by heat and pressUre to form with the subbing layer a permanent image on cloth • The term 'subbing layer' iS used herein to include a layer of material whith promotes transfer and adherence of toner to cloth under heat and pressure but forms a surface at ordinary tempera-tures so as to allow the use of a sheet having the subbing layer in a xerographic reproduction machine, the method further encompasses wherein the toner resting on said coated paper is overcoated with another material which further as-sists in the transfer and permanent adherence of the toner to cloth material.

A method Of forming peimanent toner images oft substrates such
as cloth, wood, plastic sheets or leather 1,S disclosed * The process begins.by. providing a silicone coated Sheet which is
overcoated with *a subbing layer onto which toner is trans-
ferred in a copying machine, the toner image Qfl the subbing
layer may then be.transferred by heat and pressUre to form
with the subbing layer a permanent image on cloth * The term
'subbing layer' iS used herein to include a layer of material
whith promotes transfer and adherence of toner to cloth under
heat and pressure but forms a surface at ordinary tempera- tures so as to allow the use of a sheet having the subbing
layer in a xerographic reproduction machine, the method
further encompasses wherein the toner resting on said coated
paper is overcoated with another material which further as-
sists in the transfer and permanent adherence of the toner to
cloth material.

The subbing layer disclosed may be formed of any suitable polymeric material that allows operation of the copying machine without jamming and also provides a surface to which
the toner will adhere and transfer. thereto in the copier. A
suitable material would be one that serves t~transfer and bind the toner mateçial, into the cloth or other subStrate
under heat and pressure. Such a material ordinarily will
plasticize arid be compatible with the resin of the toner when
both are fluidized by heat. The subbing layer further is selected so that it becomes flowable at a temperature coMpat- ible with the melting temperature of the toner which is used.
The subbing layer ordinarily is colorless. so as not to de- tract...
