  • Publication number: 20190339629
    Abstract: A toner comprising a toner particle including a binder resin and a crystalline polyester resin, wherein the binder resin is an amorphous polyester resin having a linear alkyl group at a molecular chain terminal; the crystalline polyester resin is a polycondensate of a diol and a dicarboxylic acid; the number of carbon atoms CaPES of the linear alkyl group, the number of carbon atoms COH of the diol, and the number of carbon atoms CAc of the dicarboxylic acid, excluding carbon that belongs to carboxyl groups, satisfy the following relationships; and a glass transition temperature of the toner as measured by a differential scanning calorimeter is from 40.0° C. to 55.0° C. 8?CaPES?20??(1) CAc/COH?3.5 and 0?|CAc?CaPES|?3??(2) COH/CAc?3.

  • Patent number: 10423090
    Abstract: Provided is a magenta toner having a magenta toner particle containing a binder resin, a colorant, a wax, a wax dispersant, and a crystalline polyester, wherein the wax dispersant is a graft polymer in which a styrene acrylic resin is grafted to a hydrocarbon compound, and the styrene acrylic resin has a monomer unit having a saturated alicyclic group, the colorant contains C.I. Pigment Red 32, and when observing a cross-section of the magenta toner particle using a transmission electron microscope (TEM), crystals of the crystalline polyester are dispersed in the cross-section, and the number average value of maximum lengths of the crystals is 50 nm or less.

  • Patent number: 7705931
    Abstract: A planar light-emitting device includes a lightguide plate (7), a light source including at least one light-emitting package (6) that makes light enter the lightguide plate, and a reflecting sheet (10, 11) that returns light leaking from the light source. The lightguide plate has an upper surface as a light exit surface, a lower surface opposite to the upper surface, and a peripheral edge surface a part of which is disposed as a light entrance surface (7?). The light source includes at least one light-emitting package (6) having a substrate, at least one light-emitting element mounted on a mount surface of the substrate, and a light-transmitting resin provided on the mount surface to seal the light-emitting element. The reflecting sheet is disposed to face at least one of the upper and lower surfaces of the lightguide plate and to extend beyond the light entrance surface as far as over or underneath the light-transmitting resin.
