The friction coefficient between a guide and a tape sample is determined experimentally as a function of nominal tension, speed and guide radius. A comparative study between metal particulate and metal evaporated tape is performed. The tape/guide contact pressure correlated to the experimental results. Tape temperature measurements are compared with the experimentally obtained friction coefficients.
