I'm toying with the idea of adding an additional color of HDPE to our sheath material options as we work on expanding our offerings in it. Because this would require a custom extrusion we'd need to order a decent amount of it, and it's cost us about 1.6x the current price, but it would still be quite economical per square foot compared to other materials while giving unique performance properties. If we were to invest in a single new color, what do you think would be most interesting to see sheaths made in? The black we currently use is colored by the carbon black added for UV resistance but we'd be getting any colored option UV stabilized.
