Default Penta Labs TFT Teflon Capacitor

Anyone know anything about them,and where to buy them?
Anyhow I´m loocking for a 10uF capacitor for the BA-3 driver card, a good one but not to expensive.

a 10uf teflon and foil would be monstrous and EXPENSIVE. I have never seen such a beast. Even 1uf teflons are big and expensive. Solen makes some Metalized Teflon in larger values, but EXPENSIVE. I suggest a good quality polypropolene and foil. Would be expensive in that large a value. Polystyrene and foil would be better but again large and expensive and difficult to work with. Check Parts Express and Parts Connexion. Regards

A Clarity SA or ESA might not be too bad in this application, but again not teflon, and still rather bulky. Cost is not extreme for the SA at least.

Last time I knew the only capacitor marketed under the TFT name was made by REL. These are available from Parts Connexion and Michael Percy, but do not as far as I know come in values larger that a couple of uF, and we are talking really major money.

I ordered some SA with cheap shipping from a company in denmark,otherwise if I would have ordered from partsconnection the shipping would have cost more than the capacitors.
