Ok, now it is time to put everything to truth.

Orange Drops are orange epoxy coated capacitors which may feature a number
of dielectrics and construction techniques. They are available in
metalized film, film and foil, polyester, polypropelene, some polystyrenes
were made at one time. Orange drops are actually several lines of
capacitors, but all orange colored. They will custom make them in small
lots (as little as1000 units) to an amazing number of parameters.

Sprague doesn’t manufacture them either. The company is called SBE
electronics.

If you want complete info, it’s on their website!! There are data sheets
in PDF format too.

The 715P line are most commonly used in tube audio applications.
Available for cheap in most electronics supplier’s catalogs.

Many of the polypropylenes do have a ‘PP’ marking but some do not.

I’m not aware of any polystyrene orange drops. Most styrenes are
clear…you can see the foil inside. Unfortunately they do not like
solvents, either. I saw a manufacturer float a bunch of boards with
styrenes thru a trichlor (solvent) bath once!
