Sticky tape syndrome (sticky shed syndrome) is included in the tape repair process (if needed). sticky tape can happen to video tape within 15-20 yrs. It is a result caused by deterioration from the binder (glue) in magnetic tape, which contain the iron oxide covering to its plastic carrier. This deterioration makes the tape useless. Some types of binder are known to stop working overtime, due to the absorption of moisture (hydrolysis).

The signs of sticky tape are immediately obvious, for the tape will not play or rewind. Often the reels of the tape squeak or screech. We are seeing more video tapes come through our shop with the sticky tape syndrome. Please do not let this happen to your tapes; bring them into Audio Video Workshop before it’s too late!

In the event that your video tapes have expired and have developed sticky-shed syndrome, there is hope. We might be able to rescue your precious memories by baking the tape. Baking temporarily restores the video tape by driving the water molecules from the binder so that it can be quickly be transferred or digitized to a DVD or Hard Drive.
