Steps for CD replication

CD replication is a process in which large quantities of CDs are manufactured and produced. When creating and releasing an artist’s music album, recording companies use this process as it is much cheaper than manufacturing new CDs.

Compact discs are a medium for data storage and are widely used for entertainment of official purposes. The process of CD replication is slightly different than CD duplication as it is a process in which the information is already present on the CDs. Simply put, CD replication is copying information from a master disc and making several copies of it.

During this process, a glass master is created that has all the information. Upon completion of the glass master process, layers of polycarbonate plastic is used to protect the information. Once it is screened and quality tested, the CD is packed for distribution.

In this process, an original master disc is mastered and all further copies are replicated from this master disc. The songs, if needed are provided with finishing touches; any adjustments during the mastering process. The original master disc is used to create a glass master and later, stamps are made from the glass master.

The next step is injection molding. This high-tech step is used by the stamps to replicate identical copies of the master disc. Only after the finalisation of a master copy, it is coated with protective lacquer and aluminium to preserve the stored data.

CD replication requires the manufacturers’ permission and authorisation. It is suitable for all large volume orders and offers better quality than CD duplication.
