In this study Scanning Force Microscopy (SFM) is used for the investigation of toner particles and toner-silica particle interfaces. The focus is on the simultaneous mapping of topographic features and material properties like local stiffness and adhesion. Topographic images of toner particles of different toner binder compositions were recorded in addition with phase images of hard and soft domains. A series of toner – silica blends were prepared by using a common powder blender. The toner binder resin is styrene acrylics or polyester, respectively. In the topographic images the toner surface is mapped as a rough surface. The mapping of the elastic signals of the silica free toner surface reveals the arrangement of hard and soft domains. With this technique single silica aggregates have been imaged at the toner surface mainly located on topographic rough spots.

  • 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.
