With Imation 4mm DDS and DAT Tape Cartridges, your data works harder and rests easier.

Imation Data Grade Tape Cartridges feature a protective backcoating that:

•    Minimizes damaging effects of compression to the recording surface
•    Dissipates harmful static buildup
•    Reduces tape slippage to help ensure uniform signal output
•    Protects data against effects of wound-in debris
•    Improves tape winding and stacking

For optimum tape drive performance use Imation 4mm Head Cleaning Cartridges. Dirt, dust and other microparticles constantly circulate around us, and they can settle inside your tape drive as well. If there is debris between the drive’s read/write heads and their contact with the tape, permanent data loss—or even damage to the read/write heads themselves—can result.
