The graph on the left shows the change in the amount of electrostatic charge after static electricity was forcibly generated by applying voltage to a disc. Without hard coat protection on the disc, the amount of electrostatic charge was hardly reduced after the disc was charged. Sony incorporates a high-performance hard coat on each disc which discharges electricity and as time advances, the electrostatic charge was reduced drastically from the initial stage. Sony’s disc with high performance hard coat prevents the attraction of dust.
- Electrostatic charge is measured in relation to time, with 100 being immediately after voltage is applied.
Data comparison between discs without hard coat and Sony’s disc with high-performance hard coat are based on Sony’s prescribed test conditions.
- Humidity at the time of evaluation was 62%.
