Xerox Disclosure Journal
The use of flocking for fabricating a conductive fiber brush is disclosed. Flocking is the application of a large quantity of relatively short fibers to either two or three dimensional surfaces which have been previously coated with a film of adhesive. Brushes fabricated in this manner can be used in the art of xerography for such functions as charging and cleaning. Use of conductive adhesives is contemplated.
