New Products and New Applications in the Magnetic-tape and Film Fields

In the last two years, advances in the manufacture and application of magnetic products have been made. This paper covers the physical and electrical characteristics of current standard tapes and Mylar tapes of various gauges. A report is given on -print-through- characteristics of materials coated on base supports as thin as 0.5-mil Mylar. The use of striped magnetic film in motion pictures and in television is dealt with, as is the use of magnetic products for geophysical recording. Discussed, too, are strides which have been made in improving the friction characteristics of tape and film. These improvements, claim the authors, have solved some of the problems associated with telemetering and other instrumentation applications.
