Abstract

Electroerosion recording media suitable for camera-ready use generally comprise a support layer (substrate), which could be paper or a plastic-type material, a base layer located on the support, and a layer of conductive material, such as aluminum (Al). A protective overcoat layer may also be provided. Some of these camera-ready papers do not exhibit high print quality and produce stylus wear as well as fouling and baking due to residue. In order to improve the print quality and to reduce problems of fouling and baking, an improved base layer is described which includes graphite fluoride and/or fluorocarbon resins. The base layer can also contain a matting agent, such as silica. As with other camera-ready papers, the base coat also includes a coloring agent, such as carbon black.
