rub from the center outward, not in a circular motion
I do not doubt you but I cannot see it permeating through the disk

The fungus I have seen eats from the aluminum side of the disc. The damage occurs to the reflective layer itself and is about impossible to recover from.

In warm humid environments it can be fungal, but there are other chemical causes too:
