What is the best material and colour for outdoor use?
A: Black vinyl with a UV additive is ideal for outdoors use.  For low density polyethylene we recommend the colour black for outdoor applications. This colour offers resistance to UV rays as it acts as a natural UV stabilizer with 2% carbon-loading. Please request assistance from our Technical Sales department for this type of application because there may be other options based on climate.
