Abstract

In xerographic copiers using corona generators, ozone gener-ation is an undesirable by-product since it contributes to photoreceptor dark decay. A method of reducing ozone concen-tration is proposed which includes lining various interior surfaces of the machine with an ozone-reducing material. An ozone-reducing material, i.e., nickel hydroxide, may be coated onto a flexible substrate (paper, thin plastic) having an adhesive backing thus forming a tape. The tape can then be cut to desired size and fastened onto the desired machine locations,
