The Effect of Toner Resin on Triboelectric Aging
Abstract:The base resin for a xerographic toner is typically selected on the basis of its melt rheological properties, especially for highspeed printer applications where imaging fusing performance requires a “low-melt” toner. However, a base resin may also strongly affect the triboelectric aging performance of a xerographic developer. For example, the interaction of a toner charge control additive (CCA) with toner and carrier surfaces will depend on CCA / toner base resin compatibility. Similarly, residual chemical species from the resin polymerization process may act as carrier “poisons” (and thereby degrade or enhance the tribo-charging ability of a carrier). Additionally, a toner base resin can also affect xerographic image performance (via the image density: image development potential relationship), and thereby affect imaging latitude and imaging process control.

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.
