Abstract

The instant invention pertains to fabricating a plastic photoreceptor substrate by dip coating. The dip coating process would involve dipping a mandrel into liquid plastic. The substrate may be in the form of for example a drum or a belt. An embodiment of the instant invention is to use a mandrel which is longer than necessary so that the substrate formed on the mandrel can be made longer than required.
