[ARSCLIST] Fwd: Sticky AGFA PEM 469 (8)
while working on Swedish Universal Music's
archived material we often came across sticky
PEM469. As I recall they requred much longer
baking times, up to 24 hours, but always came out
playable. Do not increase the temps from what you
ordinary bake at, just double or triple the time
from what you use for e.g. Ampex. IIRC the sticky
residue from the PEM469 was clear and gummier
than the residue from Ampex tapes, which was
black or brown. Oh, and we only did 1/4" and 1/2"
tapes. Hope this helps.

I posted this on the Studer list as well, but figure the more the
I need to transfer several reels of sticky AGFA PEM 469 1" tape that
after baking still leaves a ton of shed on the heads when I
playback. I baked at 130 deg Fahrenheit, for 8 hours. Reading
around, I saw that there is a chance this can not be baked away, and
that baking might actually be bad for the tape?!? Could it be that I
didn't bake long enough?
Do any of you know how I can make these reels playable without
Thanks for any help you can provide,
