Acrylic (PMMA)

Nylon

Polyethylene (PE, UHMWPE, HDPE, MDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, XLPE, PEX)

– Impact resistant (won’t scratch)

– Available at McMaster Carr

– McMaster Carr has only one selection, but it’s only semi-clear

Polypropylene (PP)

– Not as impact-resistant at polyethelines.

– Somewhat permeable to highly volatile gases and liquids

Polystyrene (PS, EPS, XPS)

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

– Available at McMaster Carr

– Probably the best as McMaster Carr has more variety

Teflon (PTFE, polytetrafluoroethylene)

Thermosetting Plastics:

Polyester

Polyurethane
