Abstract

A common method of fusing toned images in an electrophotographic printer is to employ a hot fuser with an external release agent (fuser oil). The material most preferred for fuser oil is poly(dimethyl) siloxane. Disclosed is a method to stabilize the fuser oil and provide for better reliability of the fuser hardware.
