The influence of charge control agent (CCA) on tribocharging characteristics of toner particles was examined by thermally stimulated current (TSC) measurements. Thermally stimulated charge decay (TSCD) measurements, similar technique to TSC were also carried out on the same specimens for the TSC measurements. Four kinds of toner, differing in chemical composition and an acrylic spherical powder were used in this study. It was confirmed that the CCA increased the charge to mass ratio of the toner. The peak height of TSC spectrum was larger in the toner with CCA than in those without CCA. However, the CCA did not introduced new traps in toners. These results suggest that the CCA captures charge carriers and/or promotes charge exchange between toner and carrier, but does not store charge carriers in itself. The TSC spectrum did not depend on the chemical composition of toners for corona charging. This result supports the idea, in which the CCA does not store charge carriers in itself. It was confirmed that TSCD measurements give similar results concerning charge traps in toners as TSC measurements.

  • 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.
