CD replication is an affordable way of making CDs when the amount needed is over 500. To replicate the CDs a glass master of the CD has to be made. Using nickel plating process a stamper plate is manufactured from the glass master. After the stamper is made they can begin CD pressing. (DVD)

The stamper is put into the replication machinery and the machines are filled with polycarbonates. The polycarbonates are heated to a temperature of 400 degrees, when it is ready to be injection molded to be made into CDs. In the injection molding process the data on the stamper is transferred to the CD. The CDs that are produced are metalised with a thin layer of metal on one side which is sealed using a lacquer. The CD can now be played in a CD player or a computer.
