It turns out this is a false alarm:

Talk Polywell.

H-B fusion requires ion temperatures nine times higher than D-T fusion. H-B kinetics peak at 600 keV (6.6 billion centigrade). D-T peaks at 66 keV (730 million centigrade).

So what do you think - polystyrene foam, pink Fiberglas, or metallized Mylar for thermal insulation?

I guess you didn't notice that this was Centigrade, not Kelvin. This is 6.6273x BK dude! You're gonna need the Mylar.
