Scratch Protection Formula For All Disc Formats
DENVER, CO—ProLine, a producer of accessories & media packaging for the computer environment has created an invisible disc coating that makes the data side of all disc formats more scratch resistant. The formulation, named Disc Guard 2, is a liquid compound of special emulsifiable resins that buffs on and off the disc. The oxygen-activated molecules left on the disc surface produces a clear layer that allows the laser-read data to be enhanced for correct reproduction while forming a shield of protection over a short period of time without restricting immediate disc use. The hard, protective glass-like coating guards against accidental scratching and fingerprints when the disc is handled. Application of the formula requires two small drops costing just pennies per disc while repeated use increases the durability of the disc. Should a disc be subjected to unusual handling, the coating previously applied takes most of the abuse while preserving the data content embedded in the disc. Disc damage of this nature can be removed from the hard coating and a new application can be reapplied for continued protection, prolonging the life of the disc. Disc Guard 2 is a versatile, effective solution for use on all disc formats, including DVDs, game discs, music discs, software, photo CDs, recordable discs, CD or DVD Roms as well as similar media. ProLine’s Disc Guard 2 is now available in a complete kit that includes a disc-gripping applicator base, two soft application and buffing cloths, and a two-ounce bottle of the formula for conditioning over 200 discs. Each kit has a suggested retail price of $16.95. An eight fluid ounce bottle that provides protection for over 800 discs is also available for large disc collections and the disc rental market at a suggested retail price of $39.95. The full line of ProLine Disc Care and Storage Products can be found at www.discguard2.com and is sold by retailers and distributors throughout much of the world.
