Xerographic digital presses have been used for the production of a variety of publications. Some of these applications may employ hot melt adhesives or pressure sensitive adhesives. However, good adhesion can be hard to achieve with xerographic prints due to the presence of residual fuser release agents on the surface of prints. Also this adhesion problem is very complex since the release agent and paper coating chemistries, fusing process, post-finishing materials and processes are all involved. Thus, it is important to understand the chemistry of release reagent and the surface topography and chemistry of substrates as well as the interaction between them. A method to predict the general adhesion properties of the xerographic prints and their behavior towards finishing operations was developed. It was found that the residual oil on the surface of the prints affects the finishing performance. When the surface coverage of oil is above a certain threshold, post finishing problems appear. The surface coverage of oil depends not only on the oil rate per copy but also on the molecular structure of the oil as well as the substrates.

More about this publication?
  • 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.
