Archival Platinum DVD-R uses an innovative Platinum-Silver alloy that guarantees similar corrosion resistance as Gold-based archival media, but at much lower cost. Platinum DVD-R is proving corrosion resistant comparable to DVD-R with pure gold. This corrosion resistance makes Platinum DVDs inherently robust against small pinholes or other defects in the DVD bonding resins. These initial defects can cause degradation of the reflector and subsequently the archived data during long-time storage if pure Ag is used for the reflector.
Accelerated lifetime tests executed under high humidity and high temperature conditions confirm the excellent archival lifetime of Archival Platinum DVD-R discs. Archival Platinum DVD-R guarantees safe archival storage for over 100 years. The use of high-reflective Platinum-alloy and standard premium recording dye's ensures the best possible drive compatibility during recording and playback.
Platinum DVD-R media comes standard with Ultra Hard Coat UHCâ„¢, the best option to protect the content against disc handling and thus extend the lifetime. UHCâ„¢ guarantees 100 times more scratch protection when compared to conventional DVDs.
All FalconMedia Century products have been tested and qualified for archival applications by the reputable French National Laboratory, Laboratoire National de MÃ©trologie et dâ€™Essais (LNE).
