Archival Grade CD-Rs are the choice of archivists and others requiring long-term preservation of digital data. Gold CD-Rs are used for e-mail archiving and storage of classified information or storing and preserving important digital photos. They offer strict quality control, the 24 karat gold layer burns more accurately and more quickly than other dyes, which results in an extremely high performance recordable disc, providing longevity and durability and providing the maximum resistance to environmental elements and every day wear and tear.
Archive CDs were developed in response to user concerns about the viability of conventional CD-R media. The unique materials found in Archival Gold CDs make them one of the most reliable storage mediums available. The patented Phthalocyanine dye is the most critical component of the Gold Archival CD-R because it is where your data is stored. The high cost of producing Archival Gold CDs is due to the use of 24 karat gold. The unique characteristics found in Gold prevent oxidation, one of the most common causes of CD-R\\\'s failure. The combination of Phthalocyanine dye and the use of gold in the reflective layer of the disc ensure that Archival Gold CD-Rs remain the media of choice for anyone wanting to archive digital data.
