The phthalocyanine dye is considered stable and the gold reflective 
layer is considered stable.

Don't glue anything to the lacquer that could damage it.

MAM-A is the name under which Mitsui is now selling their CD-Rs.

http://www.mam-a.com/

My distributor tells me there is only labeling difference between the 
Archival gold CD-Rs and the gold CD-Rs. I'm not 100% sure of that, 
but I can't find any differences on the Web site the last time I looked.

Cheers,

Richard
