I wonder if Tritan might be a candidate material. Definitely meets the need for transparency and it can take colors/ tints well.

You can click through the examples on this page.

Small part so maybe polycarbonate would be "affordable". Clear, tintable, stiff but twice the cost of PP. Easy to get a 10-pound sample bag to do a run.

Should be stiffer than the nylon and more dimensionally stable over the PP and TPU.

Thanks all for the advice. Any additional advice in speaking to a plastics rep or broker? Trying to contact some of the companies directly BASF, Eastman, SABIC, but varying degrees of success...

This woman did an IDSA webinar last year. It was rather short on usable content, but in any event she is responsible for working with designers and other 'creatives' and could potentially answer questions about Eastman materials.
