Title: Process for producing ink jet head

Abstract: A process for producing an ink jet head, including forming an ink flow path pattern whose surface has been subjected to insolubilization treatment on a substrate having an energy-generating element, applying a UV curable flow path forming material on the pattern and substrate to form an ink flow path forming layer, irradiating part of the ink flow path forming layer with ultraviolet rays for development, thereby forming an ink ejection orifice, and removing the pattern, thereby forming an ink flow path. The step of forming the pattern includes applying a positive resist containing a resin having a phenolic hydroxyl group on the substrate to form a positive resist layer, patterning the positive resist layer to form an ink flow path pattern prior to insolubilization treatment, applying a coating agent containing a compound having two vinyl ether groups on the pattern, and heat-treating the pattern coated with the coating agent.
