The coating ink, from which a web of xerographic organic photoconductor is manufactured, is rendered stable over an extended period of time by aerating the ink with a continuous flow of nitrogen or other inert gas. The ink is in its diluted state. That is, it contains constituents such as CDB and EDA, but solvents such as THF, which are added just prior to coating the web, have not yet been added. This diluted ink is subjected to a continuous "sweep" of gas. The result is increased shelf or pot life.
