If you're building a one off (as so many hams do), you probably don't worry too 
much about scraping around for a roll of tape if finding something cheaper will 
take too long and may not do the job. It may even be the case that there's some 
'surplus' at work! In business, it's another matter, and at a company where we 
used dust iron toroids in tank circuits at 100 watts with 6146Bs, we wrapped 
the cores in PTFE (sorry - Teflon) plumber's tape, which is about 0.004 inch 
thick, but cheap. I suspect Teflon tape would do instead of the Scotch 
fibreglass stuff, assuming you can get it.
