Fellow Coilers,

I went to my local plastic supplier for LDPE (.030 mil) and what they had
wasn't clear.  They called  it white/translucent.  Is this OK to use as a
dielectric?  The counter dweeb said that it turns whitish at that thickness.
I asked him to check his books but there was no clear in there at .030
thickness.  Didn't quite believe him so I didn't purchase it.  Wanted to
check with the experts first.  Should I get it or look elsewhere?
