Abstract

A contact fuser assembly 15 for use in an electrostatic reproducing apparatus including an internally heated fuser roll structure 30 comprising a rigid or non-deformable, thermally conductive core 31 to which is supplied a low molecular weight polyethylene release material 40 which forms a toner impenetrable layer thereon, Additionally, in order to facilitate stripping of copy sheets from the fuser roll structure, a second release material, for example, talcum powder 62 which is chemically inert and a solid at the operating temperature of the fuser roll structure is applied either to the toner images 36 con~~ tamed on the copy paper or to the fuser roll structure to thereby provide a layer of the second release mater~ ial between the fuser roll structure and the toner,
