Abstract

Disclosed is the utilization of a magnetic toner composition for accomplishing the cleaning of toner particles of a low charge from a photoreceptor device by a magnetic brush cleaning system. The magnetic toner composition selected is comprised of resin particles and a magnetic component additive in the amount of from about 10% by weight to about 50% by weight. Examples of toner resin particles that can be used include thermoplastic resins, such as a styrene n-butyl methacrylate copolymer resin, while the magnetic component can include various metallic oxides including commerically available Mapico Black.
