Re: Mylar Interlayer Insulation

Hi Max.

Try to contact some trans. cie and ask them, you have a big project ( 50 plus
pound of magnet wire ) if I was in your shoes and something bad happen to my
trans. I think I'll cry .For what I know on POWER trans. cie use paper or
but teflon is so higher in cost.

Good luck.
