LightScribe labels fade in a short period of time with a visible white powder coating.
The LightScribe label chemistry may react with some common materials. Among them is PVC commonly used in storage sleeves of CD/DVD binders and wallets. The other chemicals to keep away from your LightScribe discs are Vitamin E, Polyethylene Glycol (PEG), and alchohols. The last items are common in many hand lotions and hair care products. Recommended Resolution: Do not store your LightScribe discs in PVC sleeves. You can easily tell PVC by its strong "Plastic" smell. Store your LightScribe discs in Polypropylene, mylar, or Tyvek sleeves. These do not have any obvious odors. Also, keep your LightScribe discs away from hand lotions and hair care products. We recommend storing your LightScribe discs either in the original storage spindles or in individual jewel cases. Also avoid excessive heat (as seen inside cars in summer time) and direct sunlight to maintain the label and data side integrity of the LightScribe discs.
