2 oz. LAST Tape Preservative & 4 swabs

Magnetic tape starts to lose data within 8 years and can become totally unreadable within 20 years–eventually the recording is lost forever. LAST Tape Preservative stops the mechanism (binder breakdown) that causes deterioration, while dramatically reducing the friction at the tape/head interface–extending tape life up to 10 times.
