Flash Fusing Toner

Xerographic toner is formulated to eliminate volatilization of the toner during flash fusing.

The toner comprises a suitable resin, such as an acrylic, which is bulk mixed with carbon black. The relative weight percentages of resin and carbon black are 88 and 12.

The grinding and size classification of large toner pellets into usable toner powder is controlled to achieve a median particle size in the range from 8 to 12 microns, since this size produces toner images of physical size suitable for flash fusing.

In addition, the toner powder is blended with an antioxidant powder, such as butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), during manufacture of the toner. This surface coating of antioxidant requires the use of only small amounts of antioxidant, and yet, since particle decomposition during flash fusing occurs primarily at the particle's surface, maximum retardation of resin decomposition is achieved.
