BASF & Pre-Recorded cassettes question for Wilhelm.

What cassette tape Types did BASF supply to the recording industry/duplication houses?

Asking because I have a pre-recorded tape with the BASF logo on it & no signs of it being or saying it is a CrO2 tape. I have looked the best I could & have not seen any signs of it saying CrO2 on any part that I can see (this includes the tape shell itself). The tape is still factory sealed & I don't think I want to open it at this point in time. What tape is likely loaded in this pre-recorded cassette? See below pics.

Chip Davis selected BASF chromium dioxide tape for the Mannheim Steamrolller releases. We ran an ad in Billboard promoting a few of Chip's albums, and we hosted him on his European trip because Mannheim was where our headquarters were for magnetic tape. This partnership/friendship lasted for years.
