Abstract

A technique is disclosed for eliminating the delamination of welded flexible photoreceptor belt seams and for making the seams conductive to prevent waste of toner due to an inability to discharge the seams. More specifically, this technique pertains to the laminating of an extremely thin metal foil tape, such as copper, on top of the seam for the purpose of sealing and smoothing the seam area.
