[AV Media Matters] Baking videotape

We have two series of U-Matic tapes, on Ampex KCA and Scotch UCA
videotape that appear to have sticky-shed syndrome. I've never baked videotape
with sticky-shed, though I have baked audiotape. What is the consensus on handling videotape with this problem? Are the procedures for handling
these the same as for audiotape, or are there special things I should know? I bake 1/4" audiotape for about 4 hours at 130 deg and I assume that wider

tape would need to be baked longer, just as is necessary with audiotape.

Any personal insights or references to published articles would be
