Abstract

A microwave dryingicuring process for use in preparing organic photoconductor (OPC) substrates is disclosed. Microwave radiant energy may be used to dry OPC layers immediately after dip coating processing in lieu of conventional forced air dryers. Although the microwave drying process is limited to non metallic substrates a number of important advantages may be facilitated using microwave drying, including: shorter dry times; energy conservation; space and hardware savings; and a more uniform and higher quality OPC products.
