Concerning the formation of chemical toners using a latex aggregation process
Abstract:A number of companies are currently producing chemical toners using latex aggregation approaches. This communication attempts to provide an understanding, based on the principles of colloid science, for each of these different processes. While the starting latex for each aggregation scheme have many properties in common, the toner that forms may show dramatic differences in the image development and fusing performance. These differences arise from the coagulant used to assemble the latex and the aggregation processes itself. The potential for future advances in this toner technology is given.

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.
