Abstract

In many electrophotographic processes, the particles making up the image comprise polymers and blends of polymers. Such polymers exhibit the property of forming a film when subjected to pressure at the proper temperature. Images formed by small particles of, for example, polyethylene can be well fixed to paper by passing th-image residing on the paper through a pair of pressure rollers heated to about 90 C and under a pressure of ab-ut100 pounds per linear inch, Alternatively, the paper can be heated to about 60 C and passed through a pair of pressure rollers at room temperature.

In many electrophotographic processes, the particles making up the image comprise polymers and blends of polymers. Such polymers exhibit the property of forming a film when subjected to pressure at the proper temperature. Images formed by small particles of, for example, polyethylene can be well fixed to paper by passing th~image residing on the paper through a pair of pressure rollers heated to about 90 C and under a pressure of ab~ut100 pounds per linear inch, Alternatively, the paper can be heated to about 60 C and passed through a pair of pressure rollers at room temperature.

The above process provides well~fixedimages on paper which do not crack or stick to the pressure rollers.
