Sigo con mis pancakes!!
Magnetic "pancake" audiotape ("Magnetic Tape") is audiotape consisting of a thin magnetic layer or "top coat" that is bonded onto a thicker film backing and is capable of recording magnetic signals. The "top coat" consists of magnetic pigment suspended within a polymer binding that holds the magnetic particles together as well as holding them onto the film backing. This audiotape is sold in bulk in "pancakes" consisting of audiotape wound on a core with no flanges.
