The primary process that causes deterioration of videotape is chemical breakdown of the binder, typically composed of polyester and polyurethane. Over time, water in the atmosphere hydrolyzes the polymers to acid and alcohol end groups, which causes the long polymer strands to break. The net result is that the binder can shed particles from the substrate. In severe cases, the oxide layer can delaminate from the base.

Old tapes also can suffer from mechanical damage from poor tension control during wind. The layers can slip, causing steps in the tape pack (pack slip). If the tape is loosely wound, layers can rotate, causing cinching or bucking of the tape. Another problem is blocking, where layers can stick to one another.
10 BIT UNCOMPRESSED DIGITAL FILES PERFECT FOR PRESERVATION
Some early tapes used an acetate base film. This decays to give off acetic acid the vinegar syndrome. Once this stage is reached, the tape must be rescued immediately. Improper handling can cause the tape's surface to be contaminated with dirt.
