Properties of Base Materials Used for the Manufacture of Magnetic Recording Tape
Manufacturers of base materials have recognized the importance of the magnetic recording industry and now manufacture variations of their standard sheeting products designed especially for our industry. In acetate base, the manufacturer has two choices-triacetate or Diacetate. These will be compared, and data on an experimental type of triacetate base (designed to improve winding characteristics at high speeds) will be given. Similar changes in the properties of Mylar influence its use.
