The project is to determine the feasibility of developing a composite magnetic recording tape characterized by strong, stable backing materials and superior bonding of magnetic oxide to the base, a composite which will overcome some of the present-day inefficiencies of magnetic tapes for certain critical data storage applications. Encouraging results were obtained with both film transfer and solvent coating of oxide dispersions. The film transfer bonds better but is difficult to control. The continuods pilot plant for producing the reinforced base is undergoing start-up tests. Author
