Abstract

Disclosed is an electrostatographic developer composition hav-ing finely divided toner materials. This toner material includes a colorant and a thermoplastic crystalline component. The thermoplastic component of the toner is the product of solvent-induced crystallization of an amorphous, crystalliz-able polymeric material. This crystalline thermoplastic com-ponent is prepared under conditions designed to control both the rate of crystallinity of this material and the ultimate size and distribution of the crystals within the resultant product.
