Take some coarse sandpaper to it - give it a rough finish.

You send it back and get UHMW polyethylene. Because like I've said in a dozen other posts HDPE isnt what you put on a box.

yeah Extremo is right. I did some research on this in the summer. UHMW Poly is often branded as Ptex, the same stuff that bases are made of. Slippery stuff.
