Dear all,

I would like to use camphor on a brittle acetate tape to smoothen it and make it playable. I have recently read of this procedure for film and I wondered if it would work in magnetic tapes as well.
Does anyone have some experiences with this kind of treatment? Are there any published articles concerning this topic? (whether applied to film as to magnetic tape)

The tape I would like to treat is a Magnethophon Typ C from 1943.

Every hint is appreciated! If you prefer you may contact me off-list.
