Abstract

In electrophotographic devices, a build up of residue on the photoreceptor surface may be noted over time. The build up may be comprised of various contaminates such as paper, fuser oil, toner, etc. commonly referred to as toner film. Once adhering, these contaminates cannot be removed from the photoreceptor by cleaning systems directed to the removal of loose toner.
