Re: [ARSCLIST] Fwd: Sticky AGFA PEM 469

Hi Parker:

Regarding this page:

I think Ampex tape was sticky past the mid-80's, despite some Ampex claims. As I understand it, 406/407/456 was likely to go sticky into the early 90's. Some say ALL of these tapes will eventually go sticky. I have 456 and 406 and 457 from the late 90s and early this decade and so far no problems with sticky. But, it's early ...

There is (was?) a 3M site that lists all the tape product numbers and

Maybe this is list you are referring to -
