Abstract

Characters and words have been successfully removed from standard bond paper by a mechanical means in the following manner. A Bruning electrical eraser, with a 1700 rpm motor and an abrasive material, was used successfully for removing resistive ribbon thermal transfer printing. Several types of abrasive material have been implemented, some with more favorable results than others. The following Bruning electric eraser materials were used: (a) #87-550 Green; (b) #87-551 Pink; (c) #87-553 White medium hard; (d) #87-562 Nu-Red medium soft; and (e) #87-565 Nu-White Vinyl. All of the above abrasive materials removed characters and words from the standard bond paper. However, the #87-565 Nu-White Vinyl provided the best results.
