What is Kyread SDF-130A?
Kyread SDF-130A is a magnetic “developer” that permits the visual examination of magnetically recorded data on items such as tapes, disks, and the mag-stripe on ATM cards, hotel card keys, driver’s licenses, currency, and credit cards.
This elegantly simple formulation contains iron particles suspended in a fluid with a rapid evaporation rate. When the developer is placed onto a magnetic surface, the liquid evaporates and the magnetic particles orient themselves in accordance with the magnetic pattern on the surface of the material.
Is SDF-130A Safe?
SDF-130A is also environmentally safe. Several similar products were once available, but all used ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). With the advent of Federal restrictions on CFCs, other magnetic developers have disappeared from the marketplace. SDF-130A contains no CFCs, and is fully compliant with all US regulations.
How is SDF-130A Typically Used?
This unique product can be employed in manufacturing quality inspections, field service troubleshooting, anti-fraud/security and anti-counterfeiting checks, and as an engineering prototyping tool. This developer is so versatile that the potential applications for products involving magnetic recording are virtually unlimited.
Typical uses include checking recorder head alignment, track placement, dropout analysis, skew and noise testing, etc.
