Xerox Corporation is an American multinational document management corporation that produces and sells a range of color and black-and-white printers, multifunction systems, photocopiers, digital production printing presses, and related consulting services and supplies. Xerox is headquartered in Norwalk, Connecticut , though its largest population of employees is based around Rochester, New York, the area in which the company was founded. On September 28, 2009, Xerox announced the intended acquisition of Affiliated Computer Services for $6.4 billion. The deal closed on February 8, 2010. As a large developed company, it is consistently placed in the list of Fortune 500 companies.Researchers at Xerox and its Palo Alto Research Center invented several important elements of personal computing, such as the desktop metaphor GUI, the computer mouse and desktop computing. These features were frowned upon by the then board of directors, who ordered the Xerox engineers to share them with Apple technicians. The features were taken on by Apple and, later, Microsoft. Partly thanks to these features, these two firms would then go on to duopolize the personal computing world. Wikipedia.

A method of digitally printing a solder mask. The method includes providing a solder mask ink composition including: 1) a resin and 2) a solvent in an amount of at least 20% by weight relative to the total weight of the solder mask ink composition. The composition has a viscosity that is less than 1000 cps at a shear rate of 10 s^(1 )and a temperature of 25 C. An aerosol stream is generated from the solder mask ink composition with a pneumatic atomizer using an atomization gas. The aerosol stream is directed through a nozzle and focused using a sheath gas onto a substrate while changing the position of the nozzle with respect to the substrate to selectively deposit a solder mask pattern. The solder mask pattern is cured.


This disclosure is directed to functionalized carbon black material that may be particularly usable for as a filler material to a number of beneficial uses, particularly in image forming devices. The disclosed functionalized carbon black material compositions include hydrophobic carbon black particles surface passivated via the use of an A/B-block copolymer where the A/B block contains a pentafluorostyrene-maleimide alternating polymer and the B block contains pure pentafluorostyrene. The A/B portion allows for the polymer to adsorb onto the carbon black while the b-block acts as the stabilizer in fluorinated systems. Fine dispersions result from the addition of poly (pentafluorostyrene/Maleimide-b-pentafluorostyrene) or P(PFS/MI-b-PFS) passivated carbon black to fluorinated polymers, enhancing the physical and mechanical properties. The disclosed surface passivated carbon black particles are particularly usable for improving operational characteristics of fluorosilocone-based reimageable surface layers of imaging members employed in variable data digital lithographic image forming devices.
