Electrostatic toner receptive coating is a kind of coating available for substrates, generally paper, with intended use in traditional printers like photo static copiers or ion disposition printers. Electrostatic toner receptive coating is made up of particulate fillers and pressure sensitive polymeric binder material. Electrostatic toner receptive coating on printing surface such as paper or polymeric film helps in improving the durability and print density of images or text transferred onto the printing surfaces, particularly when printed with dry magnetic toner. With the use of electrostatic toner receptive coating, the need to employ heat fusing in order to fix transferred contents onto the printing surface gets eliminated. By eliminating heat fusion process, cost reduction can be achieved as the process require high consumption of power.
Another major advantage of electrostatic toner receptive coating is they improve the smudge resistance while employing dry magnetic toner. Electrostatic toner receptive coating also makes it easier to print on matte or glossy surface. Moreover, the cost of this technology is quite affordable, adding a small amount as 3% to the total cost. Electrostatic toner receptive coating technology is scalable and can be applied on a single station printing or flex print. Makers of electrostatic toner receptive coatings offer them for different printer technologies.
In the coming years, it is expected that the major manufacturers will focus on developing new material and process to make electrostatic toner receptive coatings even cheaper which is expected to drive the electrostatic toner receptive coating market. Hence, their perceived advantages and cost reduction present a favourable outlook for electrostatic toner receptive coatings market during the forecast period.
