Hey Garrett,

To be honest, 8 years is very demanding, depending on light exposure. I spend a lot of time working in automotive, where the standard test is 2 years southern Florida exposure. They typically measure 'delta E', which is a color shift of the 3 basic colors. Material suppliers typically have that information for their 'UV' stabilized products, so it might help you make a decision.

I have never seen 8 year data.

There is another material that I thought of which may make sense. It is called Nylex, and it is a blend of polypropylene and nylon. It is manufactured by a material supplier in Ohio named Multibase.

Sorry I don't have better direction for you - these materials are not my specialty. I just run into this issue from time to time here in Detroit.

Good luck,
