Magnetic Oxide

From Chace Audio

Magnetic oxide is the iron coating that makes up the emulsion side of magnetic tape or film. The oxide particles are arranged by magnetization to carry data or audio information. These particles are also known as iron oxide or ferric oxide.

In this image of a severely deteriorated magnetic film element, the magnetic oxide particles are seen literally falling off the reel and dusting the bottom of its can.
