This configuration is a cake box of 50 discs.
Long-term applications such as backfile conversion, e-mail archiving, and storage of classified correspondence can benefit from the Gold CD-R's strict quality control, 24 karat gold reflective layer and patented Phthalocyanine dye formula which offers storage life well in excess of 300 years.
The Archive-Grade CD-R was developed in response to user concerns about the viability of conventional CD-R media. Consumer grade discs frequently select dyes and reflective materials to achieve the lowest possible unit cost rather than the highest possible performance. These compromises are reasonable accommodations in the consumer market but they do not take into account the requirements of long-term archive applications and may be susceptible to rapid deterioration when subjected to heat, light, or humidity. The MAM-A Gold Archive-Grade CD-R is optimized for long life and provides demonstrably superior longevity and resistance to environmental degradation compared to conventional CD-R media.
