Xerographic Printing of Textiles
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-4451.1999.15.1.art00049_1  Published OnlineJanuary 1999

Xerographic printing of a number of common fabrics was investigated. The role of the polymeric binder used for the formulation of the commercially available and custom-made toners was investigated. Fabric performance tests (crockfastness), friction tests (not discussed here), and morphological investigations were performed. The intricate relations of toner and fabric properties with the results of an important overall industrial performance test for fabrics (crockfastness) are discussed. Both cohesive and adhesive toner failure can be important. Improved toner performance was achieved with a thermoset polymer as the toner binder. However, curing times for the thermoset polymer used here are not sufficiently short for high-speed industrial printing.
