Disclosed is the use of an antistatic coating layer, for example, ARTWRIGHTS SUPER CLEAR 106, for VERDE'" films. In addition to preventing charge accumulation, the antistatic film has to be transparent, humidity insensitive, heat resistant and have low UV absorption. These requirements are all met by this material. Without the antistatic layer, electric sparks are observed during the imaging and development steps, causing degradation of image quality. The ARTWRIGHTS SUPER CLEAR 106 is a dispersion of indium-tin oxide.
