    +1 to this. I am sensitive to flickering light up to at least 60 Hz, which means when my inlaws go into the fake christmas tree display area at Bronner's I need to make myself scarce, as it is highly...

    If it were teflon, I might say you have a chance at plunging a blade in at a 22° angle and then peeling the whole thing off at once, but that's PEEK, and it's pretty stout for a backup. You can try...
