Hi awesome PP people,
we would love to experiment with PP for making super use full and stylish roof tiles in Colombia 🙂 Wondering how experiences are till now regarding UV impact on the material, thickness app 1,5cm?
Sun can be strong here in the Sierra Nevada, maybe anyone can recommend a plastic type for that? Any other inputs or experiences with add ons, to make it last longer?? Thanks sooo much!

Warm regards,

Interesting reading  https://www.coleparmer.com/tech-article/uv-properties-of-plastics . There are other articles like it. For roof tiles, I would consider both UV and temperature sensitivity. A dark tile can get pretty hot.
