Abstract

A particulate deposition process is described in the IBM Technical Disclosure Bulletin 16, 2369 (December 1973) and 16, 2467 (January 1974). The silica layer coating of that process can be replaced by a colloidal alumina process to provide more uniform monolayers, greater adherence to the flexible substrate, and better wear characteristics to the subsequently deposited magnetic material.
