crazy thought--CD-R as reflector?

Here is a crazy thought...would a CD-R or CD-RW work as a reflector for 
S-band (or other) helical antennas?<

Why not try it? It's about 1 wavelength in diameter. I used a Chinese
cooking wok as a parabolic dish once. Also an aluminized "space blanket"
stretched over an umbrella. Not the best....  :-)
