<<  Does anyone know how much voltage (AC at 60 Hz) mylar insulation 
 one-thousandth of an inch thick will handle?  I am using it for interlayer 
 insulation in a homemade pig. >>

Mylar has a dielectric strength of 3500-4500 kV / mil., but Mylar is lots of 
things. You might check the DuPont page and check  at http://www.matweb-dot-com

I have two layers of silicone rubber sheeting wrapped around the secondary of 
my bipolar.
It has eliminated arc overs and allows for a much tighter coupling.
Hope this helps.
