Agfa PEM-469 success

Filed under: project notes,storage-care-handling,Tape Aging — 2012-02-26 by Richard L. Hess — Last Edit 2012-02-26 by Richard L. Hess

We had success transferring two reels of one-inch Agfa PEM-469 tape that was shedding and leaving a waxy clear-to-yellow exudate on everything. We were happy to get through these and recover the content. This is discussed in more detail towards the bottom of our Degrading Tapes page—hopefully the most up-to-date resource on the Web about problem tapes. Please let me know if you would like to help me add anything to the page. It is there for everyone struggling with old degrading tapes. If you haven’t looked already, please look at my paper on the subject.
