I wonder if Delkin licensed the old Kodak patents? Kodak used to claim a
300 year life-span, which is something that Mistui has never done.

>Delkin Devices, Inc., manufacturer of quality eFilm memory cards and

>The patented Phthalocyanine dye is the most critical component of the

>Gold is one of the most inert elements on earth and Delkin incorporates
>20 of 24k gold into every eFilm Archival Gold disc. Gold's inert
>characteristics prevent oxidation, a common cause of failure to most
>CD-Rs. Along with the Phthalocyanine dye and gold reflective layer,
>eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's provide the most extreme protection for your
>digital images from environmental degradation.

>Delkin will begin shipping eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's in early October
>in a variety of quantities and types of packaging. The CD-R 10 Pack will
>be sold in a protective plastic case that holds 10 CD-R's in
>polypropylene sleeves. There will be a 1" 3 ring binder available with
>16 eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's in protective sleeves. The 25 pack will be
>available in a cake box type spindle. Delkin also plans to ship 100
>CD-R's in bulk packaging. eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's will be available
>at consumer photography and electronic stores worldwide and online at
>Delkin's website at www.delkin.com.

>"Our eFilm Archival Gold CD-R's will be a perfect companion to our
>BurnAway as well," explains Alan Parry, Director of Marketing at Delkin
>Devices, Inc. "The combination will provide consumers with a reliable

>released a white paper further discussing the details of CD-R media. You
>can download the white paper at www.archivalgold.com
