Title:
IMAGE RECORDING METHOD
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/1993/007542
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
An electrostatic latent image is formed on a substrate (photosensitive member) by a Carlson process, etc, and is developed by a solid developing agent prepared by dispersing colorant particles in a dispersion medium which remains solid at normal temperature and repeats reversibly change phases above and below its melting point. Then, the substrate and a transfer member are brought into pressure contact and heated, and this pressure contact heating temperature is raised above the melting point of the dispersion medium to melt the latter. Subsequently, the dispersion medium is cooled to a temperature below the melting point and the transfer member is peeled to transfer the developed image to the transfer member. Alternatively, the pressure contact heating temperature is set to a temperature not exceeding the melting point to soften the dispersion medium, and then the transfer member is peeled to transfer the developed image to the latter. A resin layer having compatibility with the dispersion medium of the developing agent is formed on the surface of recording paper.
