Acu-Disc perfect the thermal blank CDR! As many thermal CD printer owners know, not all printable CDRs and DVDRs are created equal.
With this 'true white' thermal printable CDR from Acu-Disc you benefit from the same high quality optical grade moulding as with all their blank CDR, DVDR & Blu-Ray media, with the addition of a crisp and bright white thermal printable surface.
The Acu-disc white thermal CDR is full surface, so you can print right up to the centre hole and the hub is metallized to allow a solid & consistent full surface print. Designed particularly for the use with the Rimage Everest I, II, III, 600 and the TEAC P55. This disc is the professionals choice time and time again.
ACU DISC have become the UK's best loved manufacturer of both thermal and Inkjet printable Blu-Ray Discs, Blank DVD-R and Blank CDR optical media.

ACU-DISC are so confident in the quality of their blank optical media they produce, that they are the very first manufacturer of optical discs to offer a Satisfaction Guarantee. Whether you use a CD/DVD & Blu-Ray copier, printer or publisher, ACU-DISC have the perfect disc for you.
Phthalocyanine dye recording dyes
CD-R is a "write once" technology that can be used in both CD-R and CD-RW recorders and read by nearly any computer CD drive or audio CD player.
In a CD-R the recording layer is made with organic dyes — greenish cyanine dye, golden phthalocyanine dye, or silver-blue azo dye.
The laser of your CD-R/CD-RW drive heats the dye to a temperature of about 200° C, irreversibly melting a pitted pattern into the recording layer. A plastic layer alongside the dye expands into the newly available space creating a pit pattern similar to that of a conventional CD. Your CD player reads this highly reflective pattern for playback. Because the plastic layer melts into the dye layer to set the pattern, CD-R discs cannot be re-recorded.
Unlike a stamped CD, CD-Rs are manufactured with a spiral groove (like a phono disc) called the pregroove. It provides a precise track for the writing laser to follow. A CD player depends on following the recorded track of pits in order to track the spiral path.
Phthalocyanine dye is superior to the Cyanine dye used in other CD -R products for two reasons. One, Phthalocyanine dye is far more stable than Cyanine. The information recorded on a Phthalocyanine dye CD-R will last for over 100 years. Cyanine based products might last 20 years. Secondly, Phthalocyanine dye is optimised for use in higher speed writers.
This success is due to the accuracy with which laser light is able to create "pits" in the Pthalocyanine surface. Pits etched into Cyanine-based disks at high speed can be shallow or poorly defined, resulting in a poorly written disc.
