RE: Oncor Company

From:"Tarpley, John"

Oncor was acquired by Intergen. Their Web site is I don't know if they still sell
the coverslips which were basically cutup pieces of plastic bag material
probably polyethylene and known in the building trade as Visqueen used for
vapor barriers and available by the roll.
