Abstract

Broadly, this concept involves mixing a relatively non-toxic, non-f lammable solvent for the plastic component of a particle migration imaging member with a non-flammable, non-solvent for the plastic. For example, non-halogenated, non-flammable solvent mixture may be used for meniscus development of particle migration imaging films such as the process disclosed in Canadian Patent 951,365. These solvents should dissolve the plastic component of a particle migration imaging film, but not too quickly, and have reasonably low conductivity. A mixture of butyl acetate mixed with about 50 percent of Sohio 3440 appears to be an excellent solvent for particle migration imaging development. The photographic speed of the system is actually better than conventional systems, presumably because the liquid conductivity is lower.
