In magnetography, the recording surface of the magnetic tape must be cleaner than that acceptable for an image retentive member in an electrophotographic copier. This is because the magnetic recording head in a magnetographic system is generally held in contact with a moving tape. Contaminants such as paper particles, dust and toner particles that are on the tape recording surface collect on the recording head. The debris collected on the recording head reduces the quality of the recorded image.
