Who knows? The best thing to do is test it.  Use a variac and a neon 
transformer to apply voltage to both sides of the tan stuff and the 
normal clear-whitish stuff, and compare breakdown voltages.  Repeat with 
several samples, and try different thicknesses.  Average the results and 
you'll know which one is better.  Use that one.
