The poly sheet is to protect the logic board and to soften the light.

Sorry to say Apple doesn't sell the keyboard parts discreetly. You'll need to find a junker to swap out your poly sheet if its damaged (torn).

Otherwise, you'll need to replace the entire Upper Case to replace the keyboard .

Some people have managed to get the keyboards alone from China (in bulk purchase). Check with some parts suppliers to see what they have the keyboard alone.

I ordered a keyboard from eBay.. Just didn't come with keyboard plastic w/ poly paper attached... Im almost complete reassemblimg with the poly partially on prior plastic..I wanted to be sure performance wouldn't be affected.. NEVER OPENED AN APPLE BEFORE!


Without it a spill can get though! I would try to get it replaced or patched up so it won't leak (if something spills).
