Default Re: CFR100 Resistors from RS

the cfr is a carbon film, not composition, I guess that's what the CF bit means. Those RS photographs are notoriously unreliable. If the datasheet says the body is a delicate shade of apple green with a hint of mature stilton, I'd be inclined to believe that.

CPC's own brand MCF range are more 'vintage' in a 1960's kind of way. The datasheet says 'beige' unless you order the fusible type.
