I don't know; following is from tssphoto's site, where I buy blanks:
Scroll down to section that begins with:
NEWS FLASH - Kodak DISCONTINUES the 'GOLD' Ultima!
Because of the high cost of producing a 100% gold layer CD-R,
Kodak is replacing this product with a silver/gold alloy
reflective layered disc, called the 'Kodak CD-R Ultima'. ...
They also write in that section:
"There are some Kodak Gold Ultima's (with the 100% gold
reflective layer) still floating around the country (although
there are none left at Kodak's warehouses). As we come across
distributors that still have old stocks of the Gold Ultima,
we'll buy up the CD's and offer them to you."
