Abstract

A method for improving the reliability of paper handling systems in which a rubber-like material is used to frictionally engage the paper, which comprises incorpor-ating a sufficient amount of a conductive material or an anti-static material into the rubber-like material to minimize the accumulation of electrostatic charge on the rubber-like material. In the paper handling apparatus, such rubber-like material should be electrically grounded or possibly electrically biased. Examples of materials which might be incorporated into the rubber-like material include carbon black and tetraheptyl ammonium bromide.
