Abstract

Electrolytic or electrochemical printing has the potential of yielding high quality printing at higher densities than is possible with other types of conventional printing systems. It is, however, possible to enhance this performance and print quality by raising the temperature of leuco dyes used in these technologies to approximately 60 degrees F prior to printing.
