This 3592 cartridge contains half-inch, advanced metal particle, dual-layer tape. This tape uses a high-quality coating that provides the signal and aerial density margin to store an extremely high capacity of data. The tape also features an ultra-smooth surface and uniform magnetic layer less than 0.2 microns thick - both intended to help improve media reliability and tape drive processing times. Because normal wear and tear can degrade media, the 3592 cartridge offers significant improvements in tape cartridge design - such as enhanced locking pin, hub and clutch assemblies - to help improve durability. The cartridge also minimizes surface defects and uses a precision timing - based servo formatting process to enable higher track densities without increasing error rates.
