Abstract

This article describes a wire matrix print head in which the wires forming the matrix are coated with a coating, which prevents adhesion, such as a tetrafluoroethylene coating or a silicone coating. In addition, manufacturing processes are provided wherein the wires of the print head are coated with the coating after forming the wires into a complete wire matrix print head which is then dipped into the coating bath.
