USING A WIRED NETWORK
You must set up the network protocols on your machine to use it on your
network. This chapter will show you how this is easily accomplished.
You can use network after connecting network cable to a corresponding
port on your machine.
Printing network configuration report
You can print a Network Configuration Report from the machine's control
panel that will show the current machine’s network settings. This will help
you to set up a network and troubleshooting problems.
To print the report:
In ready mode, press and hold the
(cancel button) for about 7 seconds.
You can find your machine’s MAC address and IP address.
For example:
• IP Address : 192.0.0.192
Setting IP address
First, set up an IP address for network printing and managements. In most
cases a new IP address will be automatically assigned by a DHCP
(Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server located on the network.
In a few situations the IP address must be set manually. This is called a
static IP and is often required in corporate Intranets for security reasons.
• DHCP IP assignment: Connect your machine to the network, connect
the power cord and wait a few minutes for the DHCP server to assign an
IP address to the machine. Then, print the Network Configuration
Report as explained above. If the report shows that the IP address has
changed, the assignment was successful. You will see the new IP
address in the report.
• Static IP assignment: Use SetIP program to change the IP address
from your computer. (Only if you do not want to use DHCP.)
In an office environment, we recommend that you contact a network
administrator to set this address for you.
IP setting using SetIP Program (Windows)
This program is for manually setting the network IP address of your
machine using its MAC address to communicate with the machine. A
MAC address is the hardware serial number of the network interface and
can be found in the Network Configuration Report.
For using SetIP program, disable the computer firewall before continuing
by performing the following:
1. Open Start > All programs > Control Panel.
2. Double click Security Center.
3. Click Windows Firewall at the bottom of the screen.
4. Disable the firewall.
Installing the program
1. Make sure that the machine is connected to your computer and
powered on.

window appear.
• If the installation window does not appear, click Start and then
Run. Type X:\Setup.exe, replacing “X” with the letter which
represents your drive. Click OK.
• If you use Windows Vista, click Start > All programs >
Accessories > Run.
Type X:\Setup.exe replacing “X” with the letter which represents
your drive and click OK.
• If the AutoPlay window appears in Windows Vista, click Run
Setup.exe in Install or run program field, and click Continue in
the User Account Control windows.

Guidelines to select the print media
Print media that does not meet the guidelines outlined in this user guide
may cause the following problems:
• Poor print quality
• Increased paper jams
• Premature wear on the machine.
Properties, such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content, are
important factors that affect the machine’s performance and the output
quality. When you choose print materials, consider the following:
• The type, size and weight of the print media for your machine are
described in print media specifications. (See "Print media specifications"
on page 66.)
• Desired outcome: The print media you choose should be appropriate for
your project.
• Brightness: Some print media are whiter than others and produce
sharper, more vibrant images.
• Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the print media affects how
crisp the printing looks on the paper.
•
•

CHANGING THE TRAY SIZE
The tray is preset to Letter or A4 size, depending on your country. To
change the size, you need to adjust the paper guides.
Some print media may meet all of the guidelines in this section and
still not produce satisfactory results. This may be the result of
improper handling, unacceptable temperature and humidity levels,
or other variables over which cannot be controlled.
Before purchasing large quantities of print media, ensure that it
meets the requirements specified in this user guide.
Using print media that does not meet these specifications may cause
problems, requiring repairs. Such repairs are not covered by the
warranty or service agreements.
The amount of paper put into the tray may differ according to media
type used. (See "Print media specifications" on page 66.)

When selecting envelopes, consider the following factors:
- Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed
90 g/m2 otherwise a jam may occur.
- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat and should
not contain air.
- Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled, nicked, nor
damaged.
- Temperature: Use envelopes that are compatible with the heat and
pressure of the machine during operation.
Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp-and well-creased folds.
Do not use stamped envelopes.
Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, coated lining,
self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic materials.
Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope extends all the way to
the corner of the envelope.
1 Acceptable
2 Unacceptable
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that
folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with the machine’s
fusing temperature (about 170°C(338 °F) for 0.1 second. The extra flaps
and strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or jams, and may even
damage the fuser.
For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm from
the edges of the envelope.
Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
Transparencies used in the machine must be able to withstand
machine’s fusing temperature.
Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the machine.
Do not leave unused transparencies in the paper tray for long periods of
time. Dust and dirt may accumulate on them, resulting in spotty printing.
To avoid smudging caused by fingerprints, handle them carefully.
To avoid fading, do not expose printed transparencies to prolonged
sunlight.
Ensure that transparencies are not wrinkled, curled, or have any torn
edges.
Do not use transparencies that separates from the backing sheet.
To prevent transparencies from sticking to each other, do not let the
printed sheets stack up as they are begin printed out.
Labels
To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels designed for use in laser
machines.
•
•
•
•
When selecting labels, consider the following factors:
- Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at your
machine’s fusing temperature (about 170°C(338 °F).
- Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing between
them. Labels can peel off sheets that have spaces between the
labels, causing serious jams.
- Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than 13 mm
of curl in any direction.
- Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other
indications of separation.
Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive material between labels.
Exposed areas can cause labels to peel off during printing, which can
cause paper jams. Exposed adhesive can also cause damage to
machine components.
Do not run a sheet of labels through the machine more than once. The
adhesive backing is designed for only a single pass through the
machine.
Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet or are
wrinkled, bubbled, or otherwise damaged.
Transparency
Card stock/ Custom-sized paper
To avoid damaging the machine, use only transparencies designed for use
in laser printers.
Postcards, cards and other custom-sized materials can be printed with this
machine.
Media and tray_ 35

•
Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm (3.00 inches) wide or 127 mm
(5.00 inches) long.
In the software application, set margins at least 6.4 mm (0.25 inches)
away from the edges of the material.
If media weight is over 160 g/m2 (43 lb), try printing in the rear cover

USING THE OUTPUT SUPPORT
Letterhead/ Preprinted paper must be printed with heat-resistant
ink that will not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions
when subjected to the machine’s fusing temperature (about
170°C(338 °F) for 0.1 second.
Letterhead/ Preprinted paper ink must be non-flammable and
should not adversely affect machine rollers.
Forms and letterhead should be sealed in a moisture-proof
wrapping to prevent changes during storage.
Before you load letterhead/preprinted paper, verify that the ink on
the paper is dry. During the fusing process, wet ink can come off
preprinted paper, reducing print quality.

Tips for moving & storing your machine
Printing a cleaning sheet (Phaser 3160B and Phaser
3160N only)
If you are experiencing blurred or smeared printouts, you can clear the
problem by printing a cleaning sheet, provided by some machines, or by
printing several blank pages.
To print the cleaning sheet:
In ready mode, press and hold the
(cancel button) for about 10 seconds,
then release.
• OPC cleaning sheet: Cleans the OPC drum of the toner cartridge.
This process will produce a page with toner debris, which should be
discarded.
Your machine automatically picks up a sheet of paper from the tray and
prints out a cleaning sheet with dust or toner particles on it.
Cleaning the inside
During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can accumulate
inside the machine. This buildup can cause print quality problems, such as
toner specks or smearing. Cleaning the inside of the machine clears and
reduces these problems.
1. Turn the machine off and unplug the power cord. Wait for the machine to
cool down.
2. Open the front cover and pull the toner cartridge out. Set it on a clean
flat surface
If printing quality problems occur or if you use your machine in a dusty
environment, you need to clean your machine regularly to keep the best
printing condition and use your machine longer.
•
•
Cleaning the cabinet of the machine with cleaning materials
containing large amounts of alcohol, solvent, or other strong
substances can discolor or distort the cabinet.
If your machine or the surrounding area is contaminated with
toner, we recommend you use cloth or tissue dampened with
water to clean it. If you use a vacuum cleaner, toner blows in the
air and might be harmful to you.
Cleaning the outside
Clean the machine cabinet with a soft, lint-free cloth. Dampen the cloth
slightly with water, but be careful not to let any water drip onto or into the
machine.
Maintenance_ 50
•
•
To prevent damage to the toner cartridge, do not expose it to
light for more than a few minutes. Cover it with a piece of
paper, if necessary.
Do not touch the green surface underside of the toner
cartridge. Use the handle on the cartridge to avoid touching
this area.
-
3. With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe away any dust and spilled toner from the
toner cartridge area.
Humidity range less than 20% and not greater than 80%.
An environment with extreme changes in humidity or temperature.
Direct sunlight or room light.
Dusty places.
A car for a long period of time.
An environment where corrosive gases are present.
An environment with salty air.
Handling instructions
•
•
•
Do not touch the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge.
Do not expose the cartridge to unnecessary vibrations or shock.
Never manually rotate the drum, especially in the reverse direction; this
can cause internal damage and toner spillage.
Use of non-Xerox and refilled toner cartridge
While cleaning the inside of the machine, be careful not to damage
the transfer roller or any other inside parts. Do not use solvents
such as benzene or thinner to clean. Printing quality problems can
occur and cause damage to the machine.
Xerox does not recommend or approve the use of non-Xerox brand toner
cartridges in your printer including generic, store brand, refilled, or
remanufactured toner cartridges.
Xerox’s printer warranty does not cover damage to the machine
caused by the use of a refilled, remanufactured, or non-Xerox brand
toner cartridge.
4. Locate the long strip of glass (LSU) inside the machine and gently swab
the glass to see if dirt turns the white cotton black.
Estimated cartridge life
Estimated cartridge life (the life of the toner cartridge yield) depends on the
amount of toner that print jobs require. The actual print-out number may
vary depending on the print density of the pages you print on, operating
environment, printing interval, media type, and/or media size. For example,
if you print a lot of graphics, the consumption of the toner is high and you
may need to change the cartridge more often.
TIPS FOR MOVING & STORING YOUR MACHINE
•
•
5. Reinsert the toner cartridge and close the front cover.
6. Plug in the power cord and turn the machine on.
When moving the machine, do not tilt or turn it upside down. Otherwise,
the inside of the machine may be contaminated by toner, which can
cause damage to the machine or bad print quality.
When moving the machine, make sure the machine is held securely.
STORING THE TONER CARTRIDGE
Toner cartridges contain components that are sensitive to light,
temperature, and humidity. Xerox suggests users follow the
recommendations to ensure the optimum performance, highest quality, and
longest life from your new Xerox toner cartridge.
Store this cartridge in the same environment as the printer it will be used in;
this should be in controlled office temperature and humidity conditions. The
toner cartridge should remain in its original, unopened package until
installation – If original packaging is not available, cover the top opening of
the cartridge with paper and store in a dark cabinet.
Opening the cartridge package prior to use dramatically shortens its useful
shelf and operating life. Do not store on the floor. If the toner cartridge is
removed from the printer, always store the cartridge:
• Inside the protective bag from the original package.
• Store lying flat (not standing on end) with the same side facing up as if
they were installed in the machine.
• Do not store consumables in;
- Temperature greater than 40°C (104°F).

If this happens, you can temporarily improve print quality by redistributing
the remaining toner in the cartridge. In some cases, white streaks or light
printing will still occur even after you have redistributed the toner.
1. Open the front cover.
2. Pull the toner cartridge out.
5. Close the front cover. Ensure that the cover is securely closed.
TIPS FOR AVOIDING PAPER CURLS
3. Thoroughly roll the cartridge five or six times to distribute the toner
evenly inside the cartridge.
1. Open the rear cover.
2. Pull down the pressure lever on each side.
If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash
clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into fabric.
Do not touch the green underside of the toner cartridge. Use the
handle on the cartridge to avoid touching this area.

TIPS FOR AVOIDING PAPER JAMS
3. Remove the jammed paper by gently pulling it straight out.
By selecting the correct media types, most paper jams can be avoided.
When a paper jam occurs, refer to the next guidelines.
• Ensure that the adjustable guides are positioned correctly. (See
"Loading paper in the tray" on page 33.)
• Do not overload the tray. Ensure that the paper level is below the paper
capacity mark on the inside of the tray.
• Do not remove paper from the tray while your machine is printing.
• Flex, fan, and straighten paper before loading.
• Do not use creased, damp, or highly curled paper.
• Do not mix paper types in a tray.
• Use only recommended print media.
• Ensure that the recommended side of the print media is facing down in
the tray, or facing up in the manual tray.

It is a known problem that occurs when a color
machine is used on version 8.51 or earlier of
Ghostscript, 64-bit Linux OS, and has been
reported to bugs.ghostscript.com as Ghostscript
Bug 688252. The problem is solved in AFPL
Ghostscript v. 8.52 or above. Download the
latest version of AFPL Ghostscript from
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghostscript/ and
install it to solve this problem.
I encounter error
“Cannot open port
device file” when
printing a document.
Avoid changing print job parameters (via LPR
GUI, for example) while a print job is in progress.
Known versions of CUPS server break the print
job whenever print options are changed and
then try to restart the job from the beginning.
Since Unified Linux Driver locks the port while
printing, the abrupt termination of the driver
keeps the port locked and unavailable for
subsequent print jobs. If this situation occurs, try
to release the port by selecting Release port in
Port configuration window.
SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS

appear.
These messages may appear during printing.
Just keep waiting until the machine finishes
printing. If the message appears in ready mode
or after printing has been completed, check the
connection and/or whether an error has
occurred.
Check if the printer driver is installed in your
system. Open Unified Driver Configurator and
switch to the Printers tab in Printers
configuration window to look at the list of
available machines. Make sure that your
machine is displayed on the list. If not, open
Add new printer wizard to set up your

machine on the printers list. Look at the
description in the Selected printer pane. If its
status contains Stopped string, press the
Start button. After that normal operation of
the machine should be restored. The
“stopped” status might be activated when
some problems in printing occurred.
Check if your application has special print
option such as “-oraw”. If “-oraw” is specified
in the command line parameter, then remove
it to print properly. For Gimp front-end, select
“print” -> “Setup printer” and edit command
line parameter in the command item.

glossary
The following glossary helps you get familiar with the product by
understanding the terminologies commonly used with printing as well
as mentioned in this user guide.
AppleTalk
AppleTalk is a proprietary suite of protocols developed by Apple, Inc for
computer networking. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984)
and is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.
CSV
Comma Separated Values (CSV). A type of file format, CSV is used to
exchange data between disparate applications. The file format, as it is
used in Microsoft Excel, has become a pseudo standard throughout the
industry, even among non-Microsoft platforms.
Default
The value or setting that is in effect when taking a printer out of its box
state, reset, or initialized.
BIT Depth
A computer graphics term describing the number of bits used to
represent the color of a single pixel in a bitmapped image. Higher color
depth gives a broader range of distinct colors. As the number of bits
increases, the number of possible colors becomes impractically large for
a color map. 1-bit color is commonly called as monochrome or black and
white.
DHCP
BMP
DIMM
A bitmapped graphics format used internally by the Microsoft Windows
graphics subsystem (GDI), and used commonly as a simple graphics file
format on that platform.
BOOTP
Bootstrap Protocol. A network protocol used by a network client to
obtain its IP address automatically. This is usually done in the bootstrap
process of computers or operating systems running on them. The
BOOTP servers assign the IP address from a pool of addresses to each
client. BOOTP enables 'diskless workstation' computers to obtain an IP
address prior to loading any advanced operating system.
A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a client-server
networking protocol. A DHCP server provides configuration parameters
specific to the DHCP client host requesting, generally, information
required by the client host to participate on an IP network. DHCP also
provides a mechanism for allocation of IP addresses to client hosts.
Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM), a small circuit board that holds
memory. DIMM stores all the data within the machine like printing data,
received fax data.
DNS
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is a system that stores information
associated with domain names in a distributed database on networks,
such as the Internet.
Dot Matrix Printer
A dot matrix printer refers to a type of computer printer with a print head
that runs back and forth on the page and prints by impact, striking an
ink-soaked cloth ribbon against the paper, much like a typewriter.
CCD
Charge Coupled Device (CCD) is a hardware which enables the scan
job. CCD Locking mechanism is also used to hold the CCD module to
prevent any damage when you move the machine.
DPI
Dots Per Inch (DPI) is a measurement of resolution that is used for
scanning and printing. Generally, higher DPI results in a higher
resolution, more visible detail in the image, and a larger file size.
Collation
Collation is a process of printing a multiple-copy job in sets. When
collation is selected, the device prints an entire set before printing
additional copies.
Duplex
Control Panel
A control panel is a flat, typically vertical, area where control or
monitoring instruments are displayed. They are typically found in front of
the machine.
Coverage
It is the printing term used for a toner usage measurement on printing.
For example, 5% coverage means that an A4 sided paper has about 5%
image or text on it. So, if the paper or original has complicated images or
lots of text on it, the coverage will be higher and at the same time, a
toner usage will be as much as the coverage.
Glossary_ 67
A mechanism that will automatically flip over a sheet of paper so that the
machine can print (or scan) on both sides of the paper. A printer
equipped with a Duplex can print double-sided of paper.
Duty Cycle
Duty cycle is the page quantity which does not affect printer
performance for a month. Generally the printer has the lifespan limitation
such as pages per year. The lifespan means the average capacity of
print-outs, usually within the warranty period. For example, if the duty
cycle is 48,000 pages per month assuming 20 working days, a printer
limits 2,400 pages a day.
Emulation
IEEE 1284
Emulation is a technique of one machine obtaining the same results as
another.
An emulator duplicates the functions of one system with a different
system, so that the second system behaves like the first system.
Emulation focuses on exact reproduction of external behavior, which is
in contrast to simulation, which concerns an abstract model of the
system being simulated, often considering its internal state.
The 1284 parallel port standard was developed by the Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The term "1284-B" refers to
a specific connector type on the end of the parallel cable that attaches to
the peripheral (for example, a printer).
Ethernet
Ethernet is a frame-based computer networking technology for local
area networks (LANs). It defines wiring and signaling for the physical
layer, and frame formats and protocols for the media access control
(MAC)/data link layer of the OSI model. Ethernet is mostly standardized
as IEEE 802.3. It has become the most widespread LAN technology in
use during the 1990s to the present.
EtherTalk
A suite of protocols developed by Apple Computer for computer
networking. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984) and is now
deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.
FTP
A File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a commonly used protocol for
exchanging files over any network that supports the TCP/IP protocol
(such as the Internet or an intranet).
Intranet
A private network that uses Internet Protocols, network connectivity, and
possibly the public telecommunication system to securely share part of
an organization's information or operations with its employees.
Sometimes the term refers only to the most visible service, the internal
website.
IP address
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a unique number that devices use in
order to identify and communicate with each other on a network utilizing
the Internet Protocol standard.
IPM
The Images Per Minute (IPM) is a way of measuring the speed of a
printer. An IPM rate indicates the number of single-sided sheets a printer
can complete within one minute.
IPP
Fuser Unit
The part of a laser printer that melts the toner onto the print media. It
consists of a hot roller and a back-up roller. After toner is transferred
onto the paper, the fuser unit applies heat and pressure to ensure that
the toner stays on the paper permanently, which is why paper is warm
when it comes out of a laser printer.
Gateway
A connection between computer networks, or between a computer
network and a telephone line. It is very popular, as it is a computer or a
network that allows access to another computer or network.
Grayscale
A shades of gray that represent light and dark portions of an image
when color images are converted to grayscale; colors are represented
by various shades of gray.
The Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) defines a standard protocol for
printing as well as managing print jobs, media size, resolution, and so
forth. IPP can be used locally or over the Internet to hundreds of
printers, and also supports access control, authentication, and
encryption, making it a much more capable and secure printing solution
than older ones.
ISO
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an
international standard-setting body composed of representatives from
national standards bodies. It produces world-wide industrial and
commercial standards.
JPEG
Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) is a most commonly used
standard method of lossy compression for photographic images. It is the
format used for storing and transmitting photographs on the World Wide
Web.
LDAP
Halftone
An image type that simulates grayscale by varying the number of dots.
Highly colored areas consist of a large number of dots, while lighter
areas consist of a smaller number of dots.
The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a networking
protocol for querying and modifying directory services running over
TCP/IP.
LED
IEEE
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is an
international non-profit, professional organization for the advancement
of technology related to electricity.

with a network adapter. MAC address is a unique 48-bit identifier usually
Glossary_ 68
written as 12 hexadecimal characters grouped in pairs (e. g.,
00-00-0c-34-11-4e). This address is usually hard-coded into a Network
Interface Card (NIC) by its manufacturer, and used as an aid for routers
trying to locate machines on large networks.
PPM
MFP
PRN file
Multi Function Peripheral (MFP) is an office machine that includes the
following functionality in one physical body, so as to have a printer, a
copier, a fax, a scanner and etc.
Pages Per Minute (PPM) is a method of measurement for determining
how fast a printer works, meaning the number of pages a printer can
produce in one minute.
An interface for a device driver, this allows software to interact with the
device driver using standard input/output system calls, which simplifies
many tasks.
NetWare
Protocol
A network operating system developed by Novell, Inc. It initially used
cooperative multitasking to run various services on a PC, and the
network protocols were based on the archetypal Xerox XNS stack.
Today NetWare supports TCP/IP as well as IPX/SPX.
A convention or standard that controls or enables the connection,
communication, and data transfer between two computing endpoints.
PS
See PostScript.
OPC
Organic Photo Conductor (OPC) is a mechanism that makes a virtual
image for print using a laser beam emitted from a laser printer, and it is
usually green or gray colored and a cylinder shaped.
An exposing unit of a drum is slowly worn away by its usage of the
printer, and it should be replaced appropriately since it gets scratches
from grits of a paper.
OSI
Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) is a model developed by the
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for communications.

remote user authentication and accounting. RADIUS enables
centralized management of authentication data such as usernames and
passwords using an AAA (authentication, authorization, and accounting)
concept to manage network access.
Resolution
The sharpness of an image, measured in Dots Per Inch (DPI). The
higher the dpi, the greater the resolution.
SMB
Server Message Block (SMB) is a network protocol mainly applied to
share files, printers, serial ports, and miscellaneous communications
between nodes on a network. It also provides an authenticated
Inter-process communication mechanism.
SMTP
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is the standard for e-mail
transmissions across the Internet. SMTP is a relatively simple,
text-based protocol, where one or more recipients of a message are
specified, and then the message text is transferred. It is a client-server
protocol, where the client transmits an email message to the server.
Subnet Mask
The subnet mask is used in conjunction with the network address to
determine which part of the address is the network address and which
part is the host address.
TCP/IP

The media like paper, envelopes, labels, and transparencies which can
be used on a printer, a scanner, a fax or, a copier.
Glossary_ 69
Transmission Confirmation Report (TCR) provides details of each
transmission such as job status, transmission result and number of
pages sent. This report can be set to print after each job or only after
failed transmissions.
TIFF
Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) is a variable-resolution bitmapped
image format. TIFF describes image data that typically come from
scanners. TIFF images make use of tags, keywords defining the
characteristics of the image that is included in the file. This flexible and
platform-independent format can be used for pictures that have been
made by various image processing applications.
Toner Cartridge
A kind of bottle within a machine like printer which contains toner. Toner
is a powder used in laser printers and photocopiers, which forms the text
and images on the printed paper. Toner can be melted by the heat of the
fuser, causing it to bind to the fibers in the paper.
