The common "motor run" caps are fine. Don't use "Motor start" ones. These caps are often rated for vAC. You can usually use these at 1.4 x vAC for the DC rating.

These caps are much better than electrolytics - I only use motor run caps in all my supplies. If you use a mixture, make sure the last cap in the sequence is a motor run. I assume you mean 15uF. You can parallel them up as you wish to make larger sizes.
