I was told once by someone that lived in Australia that polyethylene
sutable for capacitors was hard to find there, I am certainly glad to
hear that is not the case!

Ah ha! Again we hear the much malined black polyethylene not living
up to it's bad ( and aparently false) reputation! This indeed seems
to be one of those situations where a lie repeated long enough
becomes accepted as truth! This must be about the fifth time I've
heard that someone was using black polyethylene in their capacitor,
with no problems!
