Apparently they are not sold outside Japan,
and there only to banking and innsurance environments.

We ahve to raise more pressure on them to make them available
to the archival community as such

This is from a report on a meeting Unesco and IASA had with Tape and CD
manufacturers in Paris
just about a year ago:

 asked how the Verbatim professional product varied from that commonly
available Torsten Leye replied that the disks were a selected line in the
factory. The production controls were tighter and the materials used better
quality and, therefore, more expensive. The ingredients of the dye were
better; the reflective layer better; a special lacquer coating was used. The
cost was about 20% higher than normal. The disks were marketed under the
name "Ultra Life Plus".


I've searched the Verbatim website and can't find any reference to "Ultra
Life Plus". Does anyone know if these CD-Rs are sold in the US? If so, where
can they be purchased?
