Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

.... maybe this presentation is more helpful:
"...backpainted" means that the surface has a Lambertian reflector backing a thin dielectric space as for example a Al-mylar wrapping with a narrow air gap. The polish or ground refers to the smoothness of the surface between the scintillator and the thin dielectric space. "...frontpainted" does not have this space. "polishedfrontpainted" is a perfectly smooth mirror. "groundfrontpainted" is a Lambertian reflector.

As I understand you were left with only one question - the mylar issue?
P.S. I was away till yesterday. Capitalizing posting titles is not really a fine way to go about getting a reply.
