Abstract

Bare metal fuser rolls utilizing reactive polymer fluids for the release of electroscopic toner have been described in the prior art. In certain instances wrinkling of the substrate, e.g., paper, bearing toner images to be fused has been ob-served when the toner images are fused thereon in the bare metal fuser roll system. This problem appears to be a func-tion of the roughness of the fuser roll surface.
