Go ahead!  Use that 90 mil poly, rather than sit on the side lines.  I 
would imagine it would handle under 12KVac just fine as long as the power 
level was around 2kw or less and no rotary were used which was spun to 
give more than a few hundred breaks per second.

My advice was for an optimized amateur design based on long experience.  
I still use my single ply 60 mil poly dielecric caps which I rolled on 
our old video report #3.  They haven't gone out yet!  I use two .018 ufd 
units in series for .009ufd and have had 14,400 volts from a potential 
transformer on the pair at 2.5KW with no problems.
