Preparation of Ceramic Toner by Suspension Polymerization
  DOI :  10.2352/J.ImagingSci.Technol.  Published OnlineNovember 2012

Abstract In ceramic decoration by xerography, once the toner particles have been deposited, the substrates need to be subjected to thermal treatment at temperatures above 600C to eliminate the organic constituents and enable the inorganic constituents to be integrated into the ceramic surface. The inorganic component includes a fraction that is able to modify the aesthetic appearance and a fraction that facilitates fusibility and integration into the substrate. At present, this type of toner is made by the pulverization method, with the presence of irregularly shaped particles and inorganic particles that are only partly coated by the polymeric matrix, which can lead to problems of particle flowability and electrical conductivity. This article describes a new method of ceramic toner preparation by suspension polymerization that avoids the above problems. The method allows a high inorganic component content in the toner composition to be reached, assuring good color saturation in decoration.
