LAST Factory Tape Preservative (2 oz.)


Free Lifetime Technical Assistance
SKU: Tape Preservative TP


LAST Tape Preservative, 2 oz.

Magnetic tape starts to lose data within 8 years and can
become totally unreadable within 20 years – eventually the recording is lost
forever. LAST Tape Preservative substantially increases the life of the
tape by providing protection from the environment (moisture) and mechanical
wear. Just one application protects for the life of the tape.

Not a coating –  Not a film – Leaves no residue

Moisture and oxidation are the top causes of tape
degradation. They damage the binder of the tape, which is made of acetate or
polyester. LAST Tape Preservative stops that deterioration and stabilizes the
binder. It also dramatically reduces the friction at the tape/head interface –
extending the life of the tape up to 10 times.

    reduces data loss from magnetic tape
