A new rewritable printing media using electrophoresis and selective heating has been proposed to contribute to the reduction of paper consumption.

Wax-based electrophoretic rewritable media has been investigated based on their potential for having good preservation characteristics. Decreasing the thickness of rewritable media is very important in order to decrease the writing/erasing energy of wax-based rewritable media. In the present study, the thickness characteristic of rewritable media is investigated.

As a result, reflectance ratio of dyed-wax side and TiO2 side is obtained as good condition around media thickness 0.075mm at proper wt ratio conditions of dye and TiO2.
