Symbol Tag Polymer Name Description Details
ABS Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene High impact, high heat distortion, amorphous polymer with excellent thermoformability. Details
Alloy Thermoplastic Alloy Two or more polymers combined into a new compound that ideally imparts the best features of both. Details
CA Cellulose Acetate Durable plastic with clarity and easy molding and extrusion properties; produced from trees. Details
EVA Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Flexible, lightweight amorphous copolymer that has low temperature toughness. Details
FPVC Flexible Polyvinyl Chloride Flexible, dense, chemically resistant, plasticizer laden resin with inherent flame-retardant properties. Details
MMA Methyl Methacrylate Monomer that is polymerized to make PMMA. Details
PC Polycarbonate Transparent and highly impact resistant thermoplastic. Details
PE Polyethylene Chemical resistant plastic that can come in low, medium, and high-density forms. Physical characteristics depend on density. Details
PET Polyethylene Terephthalate Clear, lightweight polyester that can serve as a moisture and gas barrier. Details
PETG Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol Modified Clear, lightweight copolyester that is moderately stiff with excellent chemical resistance. Details
PLA Polylactic Acid Biodegradable polymer derived from corn starch or sugar cane. Details
PMMA Poly (methyl methacrylate) or Acrylic Polymer with best-in-class transparency and strong chemical resistance. Details
PP Polypropylene Low density polymer with excellent rigidity and environmental stress-crack resistance. Details
PPO Polyphenylene Oxide Polymer that is commonly blended with other types (e.g., PC); easy to paint, electroplate and weld. Details
PS Polystyrene Easily molded thermoplastic that is commonly used in conjunction with impact modifiers and foaming agents. Details
rPET Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate Clear, lightweight, recycled polyester used in a variety of non-food contact applications. Details
RPVC Rigid Polyvinyl Chloride Dense, chemical resistant plastic with inherent flame-retardant properties and high impact resistance. Details
TPO Thermoplastic Olefin Compound of polypropylene, specialized filler and impact modifier that offers improved ductility and impact resistance. Details
TPR Thermoplastic Rubber Polymer blend that usually consists of mix of a thermoplastic, elastomer, and a filler. Details
