TME Professional open reel deck sensing foil is custom made in USA specifically for open reel tape sensing to TME specifications. It is real, highly conductive soft aluminum foil with a non-oozing aerospace adhesive. Almost every other foil we see being sold as open reel sensing foil is "vapor evaporated aluminized plastic" hobby tape which is plastic coated with aluminized paint to make it shiny. That tape is fine for arts and crafts, but they do not have the conductive qualities of real foil, and from our customer's experiences, will eventually wear out, may not work at all on some decks, and will ooze adhesive, contaminating your deck and precious tapes. That hobby tape is not meant for this application! It's not worth the risk to potentially damage thousands of dollars worth of tapes over an inexpensive item. Also, those hobby tapes generally are .25" wide or slightly more which will make it nearly impossible to add to sensing to your tapes without having some of it overlap the edge of the tape which will goo up your heads and guides which is definitely not recommended. Sensing foil is used on any audio tape deck using foil for auto reverse and/or auto stop sensing like some TEAC models. Note: No, it will not *turn* your deck into a reversing or auto-stop deck if it's not designed to do those functions! (We had to say that.) TME ACFOIL-26 comes 26 feet on a roll with a 3" diameter plastic core. The foil has backing release paper which you remove the foil from before you adhere your new tab to the tape. We chose to use the backing release paper rather than having the foil stick to itself on the roll to keep the foil surface as clean as possible. This also allows for neat, angled cuts or butt cuts with a splicing block before application. Each roll should have enough foil for one end of around 260 tapes or more. To use: Cut about 1" or so (depending on your deck's sensitivity), center and apply the foil to the surface of the tape where your sensors are. Smooth down with a cotton tipped applicator. Sensing foil is almost always applied to the side of the tape away from the heads and NOT the oxide side. Check your manual. There should be a slight gap between the edge of the foil and the edge of the tape if centered properly but it doesn't have to be perfectly centered. Specifications:
Foil Thickness: 1.5 Mil
Total Thickness: 2.10 Mil
Tensile Strength: 14 Lb/In
