Phase Change Developer for Liquid Electrophotography
Abstract:A phase change developer can reversibly change from a solid state to a liquid state at its melting/crystallization temperature. This phase change developer is solid in storage and before imaging development. During image development, it melts at a temperature above its melting point to form a liquid developer which then undergoes the process of liquid electrophotographic development to produce toned images. These unique characteristics of the phase change developer were achieved using a binder which contains a polymerizable crystallizable component (PCC). The resulting images exhibited high gloss, high resolution, good transparency, and superior blocking and erasure resistances.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
