Abstract

In dip-coating processes, specifically including those for coating organic photoconductor (OPC) drums, it is generally necessary to mask , wipe, or generally prevent the deposition of the organic coating along the outer edges of the drums. Typically the bare ends of the drum are required to avoid abrasion of the end of the OPC drum when placed in a xerographic copier or printer, where the abraded material would contaminate the xerographic engine.
