Actually, it is the reflection you want, or I think (what do I know).
Anyway, the point is to have a sacrificial material to throw away and keep
the inside clean. Everyone I know turns their parts over several times
while in the PCA to assure even UV post-cure exposure.
Meanwhile, I'm writing e-mail, setting up parts, etc while my parts
post-cure slowly because aluminum foil absorbs 50% of the UV rays (but, hey,
it also REFLECTS the other 50%).
My glass is half-full, not half empty.
