CD Replication Overview
Compact Discs, whether audio or CD-ROM, are manufactured in the same way using the following processes:
- Injection moulding of the clear polycarbonate discs using a hydraulic moulding machine.
- Metalising to create an aluminum reflective surface.
- Lacquering to protect the reflective surface
- Printing of the disc label on top of the lacquer.
