Makrolon® - a plastic that doesn't forget.
In ancient times, when the library of Alexandria burned to the ground, man's knowledge burned with it. Nowadays we “burn” CDs and DVDs to preserve knowledge: 24,000 written DIN A4 pages can be stored on a single CD, and ten times that amount on a DVD. Life would be unimaginable today without such discs – and high-tech Makrolon® plastic is the material of choice for these optical data carriers.
The world is a disc
It might be difficult to believe, but CDs – the world's leading storage medium for music, pictures and data – have only been in existence for around 20 years. From the very beginning, many of the major CD manufacturers opted for Makrolon® as the substrate, and they continue to swear by it because Makrolon® discs are the ideal archiving medium to preserve data for the future.
Tough and unforgetting
For the laser to read the digital code of a CD properly, it is essential that the material used to make the disc is of the highest optical quality and transparency. Makrolon® is the number-one choice here. Makrolon® CDs do not go out of shape and are unaffected by extreme temperature and humidity fluctuations. These tough, shiny discs simply never forget.
