<< 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?

Sounds like normal LDPE to me.  I have never seen it clear - only white.
