Probably not. This material is heavily plasticized (to make it flexible)
and, because it is PVC-based, will be fairly lossy if used as a Tesla
Coil capacitor dielectric. Multiple sheets of construction-grade 0.006"
clear LDPE sheeting is a MUCH better choice, and you'll find it's
significantly less expenseive as well.
