White Conductive Document Feed Belt

A white conductive document feed belt is employed to feed a document over a document glass of a copying machine, in order to correctly position and align the document.

Document 11 is driven onto the document glass 12 by the transport belt 13, which is driven and supported by conductive pulleys 14 connected to electrical ground. The belt 13 positions and aligns the document against retractable gate
15.

The belt materials include HYPALON*, titanium dioxide, earth clay fillers, and ethylene oxide condensate. These materials provide white elastic belt having a volume resistivity of approximately 2 X 10/10/ ohm-centimeters, thereby providing a path to ground through the pulleys 14 for static charges which tend to build up on the frictionally driven document 11. * Trademark of E.
