In this study the impact of toner binder resin design, especially molecular weight and molecular weight distribution, on the fusing performance in oil-free hot roll fusing has been studied for the new class of environmentally friendly cyclic olefin copolymers (COC). The first results presented in this report indicate that the fusing latitude, or so-called anti-offset-window (AOW), in hot roll fusing is strongly influenced by the amount of longer chains in the underlying binder resins. Surprisingly, only the hot offset temperature increases with the amount of longer chains in the binder resin, whereas the cold offset temperature is not affected at all. In parallel with a larger AOW, the minimum temperature for acceptable fixing is increased slightly, and lower image gloss is obtained.

More detailed studies on a variety of exemplary toner formulations are necessary to better understand the impact of binder resin design; Tg, Mn, Mw, molecular weight distribution, and elasticity effects on fusing performance need to be explored.

  • 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.
