The green film is Nylon 6.

I've done some layups using trash bags and drop cloths but found them prone to leaks and pin holes. I don't use them anymore because by the time I get to pulling a vacuum, I REALLY don't want to have to tear everything apart again and usually don't have the time with the resin cure. To me, it's worth another buck or two for the good stuff.

Jake let me know, cause I'm considering buying that material as well.

Your stuff is great by the way.

Sean,

I tried some small pieces this weekend with the stretchelon 200 and I like it. It does still require some pleats but it is much more forgiving.
