Measurements of the Mechanical Properties of Magnetic Tape

Document Thumbnail

Knowledge of tape mechanical properties is an invaluable asset in providing superior tape cartridge operation. To provide information on those tape mechanical properties most influencing cartridge performance, a new device and associated procedures have been developed for measuring friction, abrasion and lubricant-to-backing adhesion. Static, slow-speed (.01 in/s) dynamic friction measurements and high-speed (60 in/s) dynamic friction measurements have been made on various tapes. In conjunction with these measurements, data has been taken on tape abrasion and lubricant-to-backing adhesion at a speed of 30 in/s.
