Study on the effects of wax in the polyester color toner
Abstract:To achieve the oil-less fusing of the color toner, the large amount of the wax is included in the color toner. It is true the wax is useful to improve the fusing ability, however the large amount of the wax makes the durability of the toner worse. So, it is difficult to apply the large amount of the wax to the color toner.
In this paper the investigations to apply the various kinds of waxes to the polyester color toner used in the nonmagnetic single component development system are reported. As a result, it was found 1) the wax having the low melting point gives the good fusing ability. 2) The fusing ability is effected not only the melting point of the wax but also the dispersed size of the wax in the toner. 3) The more the wax is contained in the toner, the better the fusing ability is. 4) The bigger the dispersed size of the wax is, the worse the durability of the toner becomes. Consequently, on the non magnetic single component development system, to obtain the good fusing ability and the enough durability, it is necessary to disperse the wax having the low melting point to the proper size.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
