    I'm not sure. Isn't that the transparent stuff they sell strawberries(and other fruits) in?

    Seems to me this requires a little lab test setup. You game? :D

    Hmm, doesn't the best conductor provide the best RF shield?

    I dunno about the fruit. I do know silver balloons are frequently responsible for power outages when they wind up in power lines.
    I didn't say "best." I said "decent." :D

    Most tins are actually tin plated steel. Good conductors that take solder easily.
