Abstract

When the surface of a magnetic media, in which ferromagnetic particles are in an organic binder such as magnetic tape, is treated with an electrical discharge or electrostatic charges from a corona discharge device in a gaseous environment, such as air, chlorine, hydrogen chloride, fluoride, and hydrogen fluoride, the surface of the magnetic media is rendered slick or slippery, thus improving the wear characteristics of the magnetic media.
