Taiyo Yuden Urgent Update!
Please Read More
Taiyo Yuden products are no longer in manufacture as of December 2015, please be aware of imitation Taiyo Yuden products.
With our large stock supplies we have continued to serve the quality driven Taiyo Yuden market, however we have increasingly seen a rise in Taiyo Yuden-like discs that are not performing to expected standards. Upon investigation of the media they, while using Taiyo Yuden MID's in some cases, are discs manufactured post Taiyo Yuden closure and are not Taiyo Yuden media.
Please find official cessation notice here.
Taiyo Yuden are "working on eliminating imitation products", but this is a difficult process, it's recommended to be extra vigilant in your purchasing to avoid these products that can cause "quality failure".
We will be marking Taiyo Yuden products that are no longer available with the above notice when they are no longer available from official distributors and recommending suitable, high quality alternatives to ensure your media production is not hindered.
We would recommend Taiyo Yuden users switch to the alternative high-quality brands, ACU-Disc, River Media and Falcon Media. All of these manufacturers, like Taiyo Yuden, produce exceptional quality, A-Grade media.
Please contact us on 0208 311 7077 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to speak to one of our technical staff regarding your requirements, we will be happy to advise.

The label surface is white in color, and it can be printed using inkjet printers that support CD/DVD printing.
The wide print label surface offers a high degree of flexibility in printing.
The printing range is between 22mm (internal diameter) and 118mm (external diameter).
Besides oil-based pens, water-based pens can also be used for writing and drawing on the label surface.
High Quality printing with unique 'Watershield 2' finish developed by Taiyo Yuden
The disc label surface is coated with a newly-developed, special coating, which fixes only the ink dye on the
surface to achieve vivid prints with a high color saturation level of 116% or higher (see Note 1) and also little
The smoothness of the label surface is enhanced, and the level of glossiness, which surpasses that of conventional
products by at least seven times, both contribute to a brighter and more attractive printed image.
The “Watershield 2” disc comes with a label surface that supports inkjet printers, and excels in the basic
capabilities in label printing. Its overall printing performance is unparalleled by other conventional disc
products that support inkjet printing.
The “Watershield 2” disc product not only boasts a safe quality (in recording and playback) as a “made in Japan”
product, but also allows the label surface to be printed with a high picture quality almost comparable to photos.
A strongly-recommended product that caters to different purposes and a wide variety of users.
Quick Drying and Water Droplet Resistant
The special coating on the disc label surface dries only the ink dye and fixes it in place quickly, and has
achieved a high level of water-resistance that is at least 40 times that of conventional products.
Bleeding is also minimized when water droplets fall onto the surface after printing.
Not only so, the coating also significantly reduces color fading due to storage under high humidity.
