Abstract

A hook and loop fastener brush clothing for use in, for example, electrophotographic brush cleaning systems is disclosed. As shown in the figure, cleaning roller 1 has bonded to its outer surface hooked fabric 2. The hooked fabric 2 is wrapped or wound with a unitary piece of double looped fabric 3 or suitable non-woven fabric. The outer surface of the looped fabric 3 may serve as bristles of a brush cleaner element. Alternatively, a bristle bearing fabric that is backed by a second hooked fabric may be fitted over the hook and loop covered roller 1. Hook and loop fasteners are commercially available, for example, as Velcro*.

HOOK AND LOOP FASTENER BRUSH CLOTHING(Cont'd)

A hook and loop fastener brush clothing for use in, for example, electrophotographic brush cleaning systems is disclosed. As shown in the figure, cleaning roller 1 has bonded to its outer surface hooked fabric 2. The hooked fabric 2 is wrapped or wound with a unitary piece of double looped fabric 3 or suitable non-woven fabric. The outer surface of the looped fabric 3 may serve as bristles of a brush cleaner element. Alternatively, a bristle bearing fabric that is backed by a second hooked fabric may be fitted over the hook and loop covered roller 1. Hook and loop fasteners are commercially available, for example, as Velcro*.

For electrostatic brush cleaning applications, conductive textile fibers may be woven in to a double looped fabric and attached to a core of conductive plastic using a conductive adhesive if biased at the core. If the core is insulating, the hooked fabric (pile) may be biased. Silver coated conductive hook and loop fastener fabric is available, for example, as Hi-Me@.

Advantages of the hook and loop fastener brush clothing include: cleaning brush surfaces that may be easily replaced during service with little or no...
