The amount of data created on daily basis continues to grow exponentially—and doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.Maxell uses only the finest quality magnetic media to meet the strictest specifications for a minimal dropout rate. Maxell then processes this media in a Class 10 clean room where it is certified for data recording purposes. Patented Ceramic Coated Metal Particle To protect the fine metal particles in the magnetic layer of the tape, Maxell invented the ceramic coating process. Maxell ceramic coating acts as a protective armor against heat, humidity and eventual oxidation. The result is a tape durable enough to withstand at least 2,000 passes with an archival life of up to 30 years. All Maxell 4mm data cartridges feature Maxell unique Safe-T-Lock ? a hub-locking mechanism that ensures proper tape tension and prevents misthreading during the initial loading stage..
