Abstract

Blade cleaning of belt phobreceptors requires some type of support near the blade tip at the opposite side of the hotoreceptor. It is desirable to rovide the production cleaner, the blade can be fabricated from an aluminum extrusion which is anodized and then impregnated with polytetrduoroethylene. Other materials such as nickel-phosphorus can be impregnated with polymers to provide a support with the desired low friction properties. Another embodiment comprises porous bronze sintered into the surface of the support with an overlayer of polytetrafluoroethylene lead.
