Default IS ERS paper is flammable

Could anybody tell me if ERS paper is flammable. I have a tube radio which I need to shield the power supply because of hum. I have done it and it works really well, but there is a rectifier tube about a half an inch away from the paper, so need to know before I go down this road.



Many Thanks



Kirk

Why don't you stick a piece under the grill and find out?

a tube cooler may be a good idea first-

Yes thanks apparently it will start to melt at at 295
degrees F and will then com-bust not much past this temp.

Unfortunately the hum came back. I have sent off for some one to have a look at who has all the equipment to hopefully track it down.
