Coating Functions
The Coating functions enable you to coat the paper that already has printing on it
(preprinted paper) with the clear toner. You can coat the full surface or certain
section of preprinted paper. For these functions, each toner (black, cyan, magenta,
or yellow) is not used, only the clear toner is used for coating.
Clear Coat Entire Page
This mode enables you to coat the full surface of preprinted paper. For details, see
"Coating Full Surface of Preprinted Paper (Clear Coat Entire Page)," on p. 2-2.

Loading Preprinted Paper
The side of preprinted paper to be coated (coated surface) differs depending on the
paper source into which you load the preprinted paper. To coat the side which has
printing on it, you must load the preprinted paper with correct side up or down. Also,
if you load multiple sheets of preprinted paper, be sure to check how the preprinted
paper is arranged. The following table shows that the combination of coated surface
in each paper source and arrangement of the preprinted paper.
NOTE
If you load two-sided preprinted paper, set front side to coated surface.
Example:
If you load two-sided preprinted paper, load the paper face down.
- If you load multiple sheets of preprinted paper into the paper drawer, arrange them in
page order with first page on top.
- For more information on paper types, see Chapter 2, "Basic Operations," in the
Reference Guide.

Selecting Preprinted Paper (Paper Select)
IMPORTANT
When coating special types of paper, such as heavy paper or transparencies, be sure to
correctly set the paper type, especially if you are using heavy paper. If the type of paper
is not set correctly, it could adversely affect the quality of the image. Moreover, the fixing
unit may become dirty, or the paper could jam, and a service repair may be needed.
Make sure to load the same sized preprinted paper. You cannot use different sized
sheets of preprinted paper together.
NOTE
If you select [Transparency] or [Labels], make sure that you do not specify any Finishing
modes (Collate or Staple).
If Stack Bypass Standard Settings in Common Settings (from the Additional Functions
screen) is set to 'On', and the paper size/type have been stored, the selected paper size/
type are displayed on the screen. (See Chapter 4, "Customizing Settings," in the
Reference Guide.)
For instructions on loading preprinted paper into the stack bypass, see Chapter 2, "Basic
Operations," in the Reference Guide.
For more information on paper types, see Chapter 2, "Basic Operations," in the
Reference Guide.
For instructions on entering values in inches, see Chapter 2, "Basic Operations," in the

Specifying the Number of Sheets/Copies
(Enter No. of Sheets/Copies)
If you are coating paper that already has printing on it (preprinted paper), there are
no data to be used as original, such as copy originals or documents in an inbox.
The preprinted paper itself is original and paper to be coated. Therefore, it is
necessary to specify the number of sheets and copies you want to coat beforehand.
1 Load the preprinted paper into a paper source.
NOTE
For instructions on loading preprinted paper, see "Loading Preprinted Paper," on p.
1-8.
2 Press [Enter No. of Sheets] Enter the number of sheets to
be coated using - (numeric keys).
3 Select [Enter No. of Copies] Enter the number of copies to
be coated using - (numeric keys).
IMPORTANT
If you collate the multiple copies of outputs by the copy sets, be sure to enter the
number of copies to be coated. If you do not specify the number of copies, outputs
are not collated with setting in the Finishing mode. (See "Collating Coated Paper
(Finishing)," on p. 1-16.).

Coating Certain Section of Preprinted Paper
(Clear Coat Form Composition)
The Clear Coat Form Composition mode enables you to superimpose a previously
scanned image as a clear image, which has been stored in the hard disk of the
machine (image form), on the preprinted paper. Each toner (black, cyan, magenta,
or yellow) is not used, only the clear toner is used for this mode.
IMPORTANT
To use the Clear Coat Form Composition mode, the image form must be stored in the
machine beforehand. (See Chapter 4, "Customizing Settings," in the Reference Guide.)
It is recommended that you scan the image form in the Black mode.
You can also select the image form scanned in the Auto-Color Select mode or Full Color
mode. However, if you select the image form scanned in the Auto-Color Select mode or
Full Color mode and use it as the clear image, colour sections of the clear image except
for black sections may become lighter or not be printed.
Up to 100 image forms can be stored. However, this number varies depending on the
free space of the hard disk.
Printing performance may not be optimal in the Clear Coat Form Composition mode,
depending on the selected document and image form.

Using the Stack Bypass
Reserved printing using the stack bypass is possible only if paper is being fed from
the stack bypass for the current job.
The following example assumes that A3 plain paper is being fed from the stack
bypass for the current job, and that you are selecting A4 plain paper to be fed from
the stack bypass for a reserved job.
IMPORTANT
When coating special types of paper, such as heavy paper or transparencies, be sure to
correctly set the paper type, especially if you are using heavy paper. If the type of paper
is not set correctly, it could adversely affect the quality of the image. Moreover, the fixing
unit may become dirty, or the paper could jam, and a service repair may be needed.
NOTE
If Stack Bypass Standard Settings in Common Settings (from the Additional Functions
screen) is set to 'On', reserved coating can be performed only for the registered paper
size and type. (See Chapter 4,"Customizing Settings," in the Reference Guide.)
For information on paper types, see Chapter 2, "Basic Operations," in the Reference
Guide.
