Cracked or broken discs cannot be repaired. In these cases, the foil layer has been broken causing a loss of reflective material. Additionally, discs that have been split will result in oxidation of the foil layer and lead to disc read failure. Occasionally a CD will suffer CD Rot due to deterioration of the disc's thin lacquer and graphic layers. Discs protected with Scratch Label Guards add a layer of protection against CD rot.
Other Types of Damage
Occasionally, heat build up from a player may result in warping or bubbling of the foil layer. This permanent damage may appear as golf ball-like dimples on the foil area of a disc. Cracked, broken, warped and chipped discs cannot be repaired.
Over time, CD, DVD and game disc players begin to wear at the center hole. Additionally, bending or popping a disc from the storage case may result in cracking or fissures to the hub label area. Once this begins, cracks eventually permeate to the read area of a disc. When cracks reach the play area, the laser is unable to read the reflective 'bounce.'
To minimize cracks to the center hub, we recommend our metal-reinforced Save Disc Labels. These strong, center ring labels protect the hub area from cracking and chipping that may occur during play and stressed storage removal. To further reduce the strain of CD case removal, we also recommend use of our Premium Lift Lock Jewel Cases.
