How long to LTO tapes last?

Tapes used by LTO6 are regarded as having a life expectancy of 30 years or beyond – FujiFilm, who make the LTO Ultrium 6 cartridges, state on their website:

Long Archival Life Barium Ferrite is chemically stable (already oxidized) and does not easily get demagnetized by outside energy. Therefore magnetic tape using Barium Ferrite is said to have a longer archival life of more than 30 years based on Fujifilm’s acceleration tests.
