[ARSCLIST] Thin tape decay
Was wondering whether anyone on the list knows of any hard data out there
(or even substantial anecdotal evidence) that shows that thinner tape decays
faster, and to what kind of physical decay thin tape is most susceptible as
time goes: cupping/curling, brittleness, shedding, etc. And even (and I know
this is asking much) whether, say, 0.5 mil is "twice as bad" as 1 mil, or
"four times as bad", etc. This is not playback-related; rather, picture two
reels of the same formulation but different thicknesses, sitting side by
side for a few years.
Will appreciate any information.
