Shipping and Storage at Elevated Temperature: Studies of Toner Response

Driven by a desire to reduce printer power demand by lowering the temperature requirements of the fuser, it has become common for lower softening temperature resins to be employed in toner. One consequence to the use of these resins is an increased risk of blocking during shipping or storage at elevated temperatures. By extended exposure of toner samples to elevated temperatures we propose to identify and evaluate the material characteristics most relevant to robust ship/store performance. As observed previously, low Tg or onset of flow temperatures (Shimadzu) can contribute heavily to temperature induced blocking but are not necessarily a guarantee of ship/store failure. Failure can be accompanied by absorption of surface additives into the toner particle. High levels of additives can significantly improve blocking resistance.

  • 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.
