<< 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.
