Gosh, now that you mention it, no. I just assumed the reflective
surface wouldn't make the plastic conductive. Be right back...
I just went hunting about the house for some reflective mylar. I found a
potatoe chip bag and measured the resistance along the reflective side of
the bag where it was exposed along the seam. It wasn't conductive and
now my wife is *sure* I'm crazy.
So if the potatoe chip bag is representative, reflective mylar isn't
conductive and won't make a grounded shield.
