The Verbatim BD-R and BD-RE also include a proprietary super-hard coating developed by MKM. This coating protects the media from scratches and fingerprints without warping the disc. Verbatim claims that this coating is a key technology for BD disc production since the BD data layer is close to the surface of the disc.
