The problem I see with mylar is that stuff is not really resistant to heat
and get deform when heated.
Some of the information I have about Mylar is that it will withstand 300
degrees F. It is unaffected by most oils, and solvents. Also it will not
become brittle with age. Since I am only going to use this transformer in
short runs to power Tesla coils, overheating should not be a problem. It will
take a long time for 50 plus pounds of magnet wire to reach a high enough
temprature to cause damage to the insulation.(maybe a dead short across the
output terminals would do the trick though).
