Fumed mixed silica-titania (FM-Si/Ti) core materials and their corresponding hydrophobized counterparts are compared with respect to their applicability as external additives for electrophotographic toners using toner flowability and Tribo-Electrostatic Charge (T-ESC) stability under extended activation periods as well as L/L and H/H conditions. Flowability studies, which included angle of repose and tapped density measurements, showed differences in the toner flow enhancement with titania and FM-Si/Ti compared to silica alone, both under static and dynamic conditions. The influence of silica in FM-Si/Ti on the initial charge-up behavior was also observed in T-ESC measurements. The differences were explained by TEM investigations, indicating the importance of the silica/titania ratio of the nano-particle structure. In addition, volume resistivity (Ω·cm) studies showed that the structure strongly relates to the electro-physical properties of the FM-Si/Ti. The influences of a thin, encapsulating silica layer on the titania core of mixed oxides are described in detail.

  • 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.
