Abstract

An epoxy-based monocomponent toner generates little or no volatile matter when flash-fused. The use of a xerographic flash fuser often leads to thermal decomposition of the toner's polymaric materials, and to the generation of volatile materials which are then air-carried to the area surrounding the xerographic reproduction device.

Flash Fusing Toner

An epoxy-based monocomponent toner generates little or no volatile matter when flash-fused. The use of a xerographic flash fuser often leads to thermal decomposition of the toner's polymaric materials, and to the generation of volatile materials which are then air-carried to the area surrounding the xerographic reproduction device.

The use of a condensation polymer, such as an epoxy resin, reduces the generation of such volatile matter due to its thermal stability. An exemplary toner formulation using such an epoxy resin is given below.

EPON (Trademark of Shell Chemical Co.) 1004=37 wt. %.

MAPICO (Trademark of Columbia Carbon Co., Inc.) Black Fe(3) O(4)=55 wt. %.

RAVEN (Trademark of Columbia Carbon Co., Inc.) 1020 Carbon Black=8 wt. %.
