Abstract

During manufacture of xerographic photoconductor web, the web passes over, and is supported by a number of elastomer-coated idle rollers. These rollers eventually become contaminated by a build-up of coating-layer-polymer, coating-layer-dye and air- borne dirt.

Elastomer Cleaning Solution

During manufacture of xerographic photoconductor web, the web passes over, and is supported by a number of elastomer-coated idle rollers. These rollers eventually become contaminated by a build-up of coating-layer-polymer, coating-layer-dye and air- borne dirt.

In order to remove this contamination, without degrading the elastomer, the elastomer is washed with a 50/50 mixture of methanol and toluene, followed immediately by washing with a solution of microsoap in water (2.5 oz. soap in one gallon of water). Thereafter, the elastomer is clean-water rinsed, followed by drying
