The Skip-Away CD Repair System uses a new technology called OptoClear which apparently ‘irons’ out the scratches on your CDs to make them play as new. All in 3 minutes. And it comes in lots of lovely colours, kiddies.
Sanding machines attempt to sand down the peaks, while wax solutions aim to fill in the valleys. OptoClear does neither. OptoClear works like ironing a shirt—it applies the right combination of heat, pressure and time to iron out the peaks and valleys on the disc, better known as scratches. Once a disc is inserted, the protective plastic layer is exposed to heat, making the surface malleable. Simultaneously, the right amount of pressure is applied to smooth out the surface, turning the skipping mountain range back into a playable plane.
