I read they ordered dye from Ciba in Switzerland.
I hope so.
The Ciba's 2nd dye, Super Green, generated a huge process window for the CDR manufacturers,
which means that they could easily produce good CDRs.
The only problem was that the dye was rather expensive.
The Ciba's 3rd dye, Ultra Green, is still better and most importantly relatively cheap.
This made many manufacturers to go over to the usage of the Ciba's dyes.
