Abstract

Irregularly shaped steel shot forms the core of the carrier particles of this disclosure. This irregular shape provides a high surface area, and also provides many point-to-point contacts with adjacent carrier particles. As a result, good conductivity is insured throughout the mass of the carrier and toner.
