Description

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a magnetic recording medium, and more particularly to a magnetic recording medium having a high recording density, particularly to a removable magnetic recording medium used for an auxiliary storage device and an image storage device of a computer. The present invention relates to a floppy disk having a flexible support having a high recording density of 1 gigabit or more per square inch as a substrate.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art Along with the increase in the capacity of electronic data created by a personal computer or the like, a removable disk comprising a high-capacity magnetic recording medium for storing and backing up a large amount of electronic data is desired. In addition, digital video tapes have been mainly used as ultra-high-density recording media for business use.
There is a demand for recording and playback speed. In view of the above, instead of the current mainstream video tape, a removable disk having an excellent recording / reproducing speed is being studied as a digital recording medium for business use.

However, the support of the existing gigabyte-class high-density magnetic recording medium uses a disk, such as aluminum or glass, or a so-called hard disk. Both heads could be severely damaged. Even in the case of a removable hard disk, the problem of shock resistance has not been solved yet, and it has been an obstacle to use as a recording means in a portable device such as a digital disk camera.

Therefore, by changing the support from a hard disk to a flexible one similar to a floppy disk,
A high-density removable magnetic recording medium using a flexible support having excellent impact resistance as a substrate is desired, which has advantages such as a reduction in the weight of a recording unit and a reduction in damage at the time of a head crash.

[0005] The removable magnetic recording medium has a magnetic layer formed of a ferromagnetic metal or alloy on a substrate.
In particular, in a high-density magnetic recording medium, a ferromagnetic layer formed on the surface of the magnetic recording medium forms a magnetic film by using a vacuum film forming method. However, a removable magnetic recording medium using a flexible support has a problem that cracks occur in the manufacturing process and the medium cannot be used.

[0006]

BEST MODE FOR CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION The present inventors have proposed a flexible non-magnetic support having a structure in which an underlayer, a magnetic film, a protective film and a lubricating film are laminated on at least one surface thereof. It has been found that by providing a seed layer between the support and the underlying layer, it is possible to prevent the occurrence of cracks in the manufacturing process and to provide a floppy disk with stable performance. Further, by forming a specific flattening layer, underlayer, and magnetic layer on the nonmagnetic support, the linear expansion coefficient (E SE ) of the metal seed layer and the linear expansion coefficient (E UL ) of the nonmagnetic underlayer can be improved. ) Is | E SE
−E UL | / E UL <0.3, and the relation between the metal seed layer tensile strength (E SE ) and the non-magnetic underlayer tensile strength (S UL ) is S SE / S UL > 1. The present inventors have found that the use of a material that satisfies the seed layer makes it possible to prevent the occurrence of cracks during the production of the medium, and has reached the present invention. That is, cracks in a ferromagnetic metal thin film formed on a substrate using a flexible material as a non-magnetic support are formed by a flatness required for a high-density magnetic recording medium and a seed layer formed thereon. It has been found that it is caused by thermal expansion of an underlayer or the like.

When a hard disk made of aluminum, glass or the like is used as a support, flatness close to a mirror surface can be produced by polishing or the like. However, in the case of a floppy disk, since a flexible support is used as a support, it is difficult to improve flatness by polishing. Therefore, by providing a flattening layer made of a polymer substance on the flexible support, the same surface properties as those of the hard disk support are realized. A non-magnetic underlayer and a magnetic layer are formed on the flattening layer by sputtering, but it is necessary to heat the support at a high temperature of 100 to 300 ° C. in order to enhance the magnetostatic characteristics and electromagnetic conversion characteristics of the magnetic layer. Occurs. Alternatively, the use of bias application, RF sputtering, or the like effectively increases the temperature of the support. The medium on which the nonmagnetic underlayer and the magnetic layer are formed is cooled to room temperature and taken out of the sputtering apparatus. In such a manufacturing process in which the temperature changes, the flexible support, the planarizing layer, the nonmagnetic underlayer, and the magnetic layer undergo thermal expansion and contraction.

In the hard disk, since the support is made of a hard material and the material is made of metal, ceramics, glass, or the like, the difference in the expansion coefficient between the underlayer and the support is small. Although the possibility of cracks or the like occurring in the heating and cooling steps based on the difference in thermal expansion was small, in the case of a magnetic recording medium using a flexible support as a substrate, the flexible support, The layer is formed of a polymer composition, and since the non-magnetic underlayer and the magnetic layer are metallic materials, the amounts of thermal expansion and contraction differ between the two by about one digit. Therefore, it is considered that the nonmagnetic underlayer material cannot withstand the deformation of the support during cooling, and cracks are generated in the magnetic recording medium.

Therefore, by providing a nonmagnetic underlayer, that is, a seed layer between the flat layer and the underlayer, the underlayer and the seed layer receive the force between the flat layer and the underlayer generated when the support is cooled, and the film strength is improved and the cracks are improved. Can be prevented. In addition, the linear expansion coefficient (E SE ) of the seed layer and the linear expansion coefficient (E UL ) of the under layer as the material of the seed layer and the under layer are | E SE- E UL
| / E UL <0.3, the seed layer tensile strength (S SE ) and the underlying layer tensile strength (S UL ) are S SE / S
By selecting a forest material that satisfies the relationship of UL > 1, it is possible to counteract the force generated by the difference in the coefficient of linear expansion between the underlayer and the magnetic layer during the cooling process, and to prevent cracks at a higher level It is thought that it is possible. That is, in a floppy disk having a structure in which an underlayer, a magnetic film, a protective film, and a lubricating film are laminated on at least one of the flexible supports, a seed layer is provided between the flexible support and the underlayer, so that a medium can be formed at the time of producing a medium. An object of the present invention is to provide an ultra-high-density floppy disk by preventing cracks from occurring.

That is, according to the present invention, the linear expansion coefficient (E SE ) of the metal seed layer and the linear expansion coefficient (E UL ) of the nonmagnetic underlayer are set to | E in order to prevent cracks occurring during the above-mentioned steps.
The relationship of SE− E UL │ / E UL <0.3 is satisfied, and the relationship between the seed layer tensile strength (S SE ) and the non-magnetic underlayer tensile strength (S UL ) is S SE / S UL > 1. By providing a metal seed layer that satisfies the above condition, it is possible to prevent cracks generated at the time of producing a medium and to provide a high recording density floppy disk.
